    Air filter intake tube? Aftermarket exhaust bracket?
    Anyone know where I can score the fancy cold air intake tube on the cheap? Also that triangle piece that holds aftermarket exhaust? I'm not trying to buy the whole fart can just for the piece.

    I wish I found you before I spent $90 at the machine shop. Buggy Depot does them for $36 but you are on the hook for shipping. (Roughly $60 round trip)

    If you need some, I've got them. They were super hard to find. I didn't try Fastenal, but I got a dozen grade 8.8 from Amazon for $15.

    I tried the old school pcv. The one that just looks like a hose fitting at both ends. Failed!!! Horribly! I also tried the fish tank bubbler that someone recommended. That required too much pressure to actually release the lower pressure in the case. To fix it without the oil catch can, I ran it open. Run it up and somewhere it has NO access to water. You should have a low spot to act as a P trap at the bottom to prevent moisture from getting in.

    I had oil pissing out of my dipstick hole when my engine breather tube became blocked.
    Harbor freight or amazon. They fit tight as hell and you wont be able to do tje whole nut and bolt thing. I used an impact and just the bolts through the openings and a giant set of channel locks to hold the 2 puller posts together. I did the job quick but scared the crap out of me when it let go. The crap part is getting it back on the crank without stripping the threading in the crank. I had to pick up an Irwin die (M12x1.25) to fix that crap.

    Here in Boston. I've got tons of gy6 tools
    I live in Brighton and have a project scooter (Peace 150cc 1P57QMJ) and have tons of tools and spare OEM parts for anyone local looking to score. In the middle of a 63mm bbk conversion.

    Ecotrons 150cc efi kit
    I've got an ecotrons kit with the narrow band O2 sensor. The kit is complete with minor mods to the short wiring they give you. I hated it. I'm pretty dumb and was never able to get the programming part of it. They don't tell you when you buy it, that you only get 1 year of support. So my long term project turned into a money funnel. It will include the bluetooth adapter for data logging. The ecotrons cdi is shot though. You can use this with the factory or aftermarket cdi. Most of the trouble I had revolved around it being garbage. It took me six months to figure out it wasn't sending the pulse to the coil. I paid about $600 for everything. $350 gets it all including FedEx express shipping. No checks, no cash. PayPal will work just to cover both of our butts.

    Well thats a very emmpowered "no". I'm assuming there is more to that. So even though everything on the top end is totally different, I should stick with the factory spec?

    Here's the question though. I have a 1P57QMJ and I just did the 63mm BBK 180cc upgrade. It came with a new head but I'm still on factory rockers and switched to an A9 cam. I have no idea what the factory cam was. Should I go a couple thousandths wider than factory spec and just adjust the lashing based on valve train noise?
