That won't be a happy SB, I tell you.

But seriously, was there a defect, or is this thing expected to go bust every time you guys rip the car?

the old turbo bolt was worn out at the time of the mod. it was not replaced at that time which eventually burnt the gasket. i think this is just the problem which shuvd faced.

i think shuvd will be able to clarify better.

YEAH!!!!!
Silver Bullet is finally back to doing what the SB does best.
The gasket had some major damage, hopefully because of the non stock bolts.
The bolts and the gasket have been replaced and the car seems okay now. Will have a proper TD tonight.
Thank you, all of you for your concern.

@ Planet - Me safe driver bhai saab. Pics of what? Shazid did take a short drive. Was grinning from ear to ear!

@ Polished head - Will call you in a bit and fix something up.

P.S. Got rid of the visors.

@ Ecclipse - Thanks man!
@ Babhishek - He he! Why not?
@ Razor Singh - No dude. Need OE RS wheel bolts. And, new tires too. Donations anyone??

Had a nice, fun drive last night. Everything seems perfect. Keeping my fingers crossed! Woke up pretty early today for another drive. But, couldn't find the car keys! And, my dad was missing too . He returned sometime back with a huge grin on his face!

Heres one pic of the offending gasket.
