    Worx also sells it, but they are priced similar so I won’t be surprised if they are fabricated in the same facility .

    Interesting, so drilling through the edge and adding bolts and nuts works fine enough?

    The DIY mod was SOP prior to Riva's or Worx intake girdle for high boost. If you go this route use 4 or 5mm stainless steel bolts, washers, nyloknuts with blue 243 loktite. None of it is needed at 16 psi boost.

    The epoxy wouldn't bond that well to the plastic and I feel like the air would still find its way out.

    waste of money, just drill a lot holes and screw it together.
