Default Expanding VA flow

Well, I'm back at it, this time, I've returned to my stock VA. I had previously forgotten it existed after epoxying the volumizer on. In any case I've taken a big 'ole drill to it, and the hole that goes directly in to the valve chamber is 3x the size of the one I had before. Now my only questioning has been, how many threads to I need on the va to secure it? I want to just rip the hole even bigger, but if I can't hold the VA on, it'll be pointless.

So, anyone have any suggestions as to this, how many full threads do you think it'll take to hold the screw in?

I plan on using PLENTY of teflon on the screw, so hopefully I shouldn't have to worry about a leak too much. If copious amounts of teflon fail, it'll be JB weld time.

Danke

Imagine.

Some people on other forums have been telling me if I need teflon, I shouldn't be doing it at all. But I realllly wanna try it out, see how it effects my operating pressure.

I'm gonna try it out as soon as I get some more teflon because I still have all the threads minus maybe 1.


Just took some pics comparing.



I had more but they turned out all blurry, my camera just couldn't focus close enough I guess.

Looking at the two, I'm not so certain my mod is actually going to help me alot. The trinity one, while it looks like the hole into the VA is smaller, is farm more streamlined.
