1) Know where I could get my hands on one of these popular 175's for my (and your) racing enjoyment ?

2) Where could I find a metric helicoil set so I can replace my 350f Valve cover bolts ? (ie:where do you recommned?)

As always ty, your a gentleman and a scholar... (well scholar anyway;)..

"I heard you guys talk about helicoils before, didn't quite get it though. Just googled it, and all I can say is dam nifty. Could have saved me alot of retapping. What kinda torque can those coils handle?"
"Any metal-expanding problems?"

"My dad uses a similar thing when fix inlet and outlet port on hydraulic cylinders. Except he machines the the 'tread plugs'"
"I will have too look and see If I cannot find any of those over here."

"Fortunatly, we don't have any thread problems with my block. But if we do pickup any, atleast I now know how to fix it."
