Well, we got the bolt out. It took a full Titanium drill bit set and a Cobalt drill bit set, plus a few punches when said drill bits broke off in the hole! Idk what we did to that bolt, but the steel was incredibly hard. I think we somehow turned the bolt into titanium or something. The threads were damaged beyond any repair, so I just enlarged the whole thing and used a nut on the bottom side... which I noticed last night that it came loose and is leaking again. SO tonight I am picking up a can of lock-tite and redoing each bolt so I dont have to worry about this stupidness anymore! I also took this opportunity to continue porting out the exhaust manifold to match the turbo inlet. I drove it around this weekend with another big exhaust leak between the O2 housing and the downpipe, but I did drive it! Last night I also hopefully cleaned up a couple oil/coolant leaks, which were caused by my refusal to take the turbo out of the car so the lines and downpipe were holding the turbo up for 3 days. Tonight I hope to "permanently" close up all of the remaining exhaust leaks so I can actually hear my BOV again and hopefully spool up before 4500rpm in 3rd gear! Then it is tuning season...

Washed my civic and tried posting pics of it on here, but everytime I try uploading any pics to my profile and garage I keep getting a fail. Anybody else having a similar issue?

No, that's definitely our problem. Will get it revised STAT, and will post on your HUD.

Stopped by Target yesterday and saw they have all their auto detailing accessories/products on CLEARANCE. Got some good deals just in time for some more rain in Baltimore. If anybody gets a chance I would stop by a Target and check it out, I'm curious if it's company wide

Nice, let's see some install pics! ...Trust me, the end of that list is elusive. I always feel like a little kid chasing a dollar that's attached to a string, and I can never catch it. EVER. And my car loves me for my inability to simply pick up a dollar bill =)
