Thread: revamped Gibson

As you know there was some problems with the Gibson's cracking. I truly feel that it wasn't cause by heat flash but fitment of the end cap. AHA is a forum member here and sent me his Gibson to fix. here is what i feel is needed to be done.
below you will see the new end cap recessed into the can. the new cap is lazercut 1/8 stainless. the way they were welding them up was seem to seem. that wont hold up on high horsepower engines.
Aha is going to do a 300 mile run with it in it. if it passes the test i will resell them. i feel real confident in my welds as compared to Gibson's seem to seem.
Should anyone have a problem please email me.

Don't get me wrong, Jason. The Mark Hahn 300 Race is a good place to test "PWC and gidi yap and GO Products" I came in there as a Rookie to test what I have to test. But first and formost....to pay respect to a fallen Rider Mark Hahn...Think of my post as "NOT" bashing you or your product. Think of it on how I see it as a potential "Buyer" that's been around the block a few times. This ain't my first B-B-Que.

Why not rework the inlet bend so it fits an RXP better...... I know that it can be made to fit... But when I tried installing mine, that was a freaking joke!
Improvement is applauded! But its only halfway there. Get the bend suited for an RXP and it would be golden.

I wondered why the Gibson never came up in the WB thread.
I didn't know so many people had problems with them.
I would think a little tweaking and they could be made into good options for someone in the market for a waterbox as they did look really nice.
