What kind of power are you running? And what kind of gains are you expecting? Back 4 More went through all that stuff over the last few years, he would know 1st hand what you're gonna achieve. I'd send him a PM.

your energy will be better used in savings, for better hardware and more power, to better use the effects these parts were designed after.
i did this with no gains to write home to mom about. i also did it with #4's and stellings with more power. between the power and the added weight to alter the c.g there was a drastic improvement compared to the bravo process.
