The alloy rad will probably be a little stronger, but OEM crimped plastic rads are pretty robust and will tolerate a lot of pressure. But I've blown both types open before

Could be an injector as you say, could be a valve sealing issue when warm, lifter/rocker etc Although the latter less likely.

Absolutely, it isnt difficult to do and will have no effect on power for about 99% of builds

Certainly if more quiet motoring is what you want, it's the only way to do it.

It could be as simple as a plug or lead, or even a coil.

It's a bit drastic thinking it could be the motor just yet

You're starting that pull at almost 4000rpm ? Video is very unclear ?

I'd have thought they'd be spooling far faster than that ?

At a push, I'd clean up the blades with some wet/dry sandpaper so there are no sharp bits and use away at it.

assuming it didnt actually eat the clip.

Quietest is to route them back into the main exhaust, then they'll be silent.

100% dead accurate....

How are you determining accuracy here ?

Are you simply throwing an alarm when the ecu pulls timing when it thinks it hears a noise it deems to be detonation ?

The fact it was ok before messing, and not ok after...has to point to you doing something.

It's unlikely some sort of mechanical fault, or hose has come off whilst you were sitting fiddling.

I see no reason not to have vacuum though. And up to you whether mechanical or electric is preferred.

Sometimes mechanical is good for its simplicity

Even at that sort of boost I'd have no issue going to high 11's. Maybe even pushing low 12's with the meth
