I think if you rebuild them with the nitrile type turbo gaskets, the turbo needle and seat, and add the pressure port style jet covers.. and make sure you have sealed t-shaft bearings, cant see why not.

If you set no goals you shall surely reach them..

the same except remove the power jet tube and block the power


Better to use turbo gasket.

If you want, ask him more infos, he's very kindly and helpful.

Cheers :wallbash:
