    that's just wrong!!! on the other hand...when you play with the big boys sometimes you get hurt
    no idea what you're talking about

    no i didnt tighten it with my hand, there a little hex screw in there that was most likely backed out cuz of vibration over time.

    My recommendation, go with the Worxtuning, wrinkle red finish. Looks great, no problems with idle regardless of setting, adjustable for both recirc and loudness. Not the loudest of valves on the marker for sure, but that is my own preference.
    How loud can you make it?

    On a scale of 1 to 10, with the RFL valve being a 10, I'd put the Worxtuning at about a 6 when set at it's loudest setting. If you are going for shock value or loudness, then the Worxtuning is probably not the best choice.

    Locktight is basically a really good glue...you can find it at basically any hardware store or even places like AutoZone or places like that.

    well i used the tape, but the liquid works just as well. It just keeps the nut or screw from backing itself off.

    Sorry for all the questions, but I'm trying to learn

    About the dual stage on the Worx valve: am I correct when I think that it recirculates a set amount, and anything over that amount is vented atmosphereically?

    Thanks man,

    Correct. Similar to dual stage relief valve.
