Cracked B&G headers...

Turns out there was a crack on the pipe that the turbo sits on. First time I have seen this with a measly mp t70... just thought I'd share.

And the fix...

This can't be possible. Everyone here knows that only On3 turbo kits have issues.

1 Thread and B&G has issues,but 500 threads and on3 doesnt!

The difference would be brian would've fixed it instead of making or finding excuses why not to fix it.

Haven't had any issues yet with my BG stuff. Been on my car almost 4 years with a Precision T-70.
Hate to see anyone have problems though. Good to see you have it fixed up.

I had some cracking on mine in the same area but it was after a few hundred passes and a lot of hot street driving.

Brian had it fixed and back to me quickly. He reinforced it a bit but in a different way then you did.

Most cracking I have had was from overheating. I will always suggest bracing ur turbo to take the weight off the headers.

My car was also running a bit rich, which brian told me kills headers.

I cracked my B&G headers many years ago, but I thought was from running 500rwhp+ on 91 octane and low timing.
