a lot of guys use shell casings as plugs.... a cursory search on this forum will give you more info than you could possibly need on how to do this mod.

More to come when I save enough cash!

I used the 45 acp shells and saved that cash for another toy. If you have a gun club near your place just go and ask them for a few spent casings. They should give them to you. Just make sure you use spent casings and not new ones.

I'm not really a gun person so I can't help you in that dept. As an aside, I rewrote the AIS removal from Jstar in a Word document. If you want I could pm you this file. It's easier to follow than on the forum. Also once the elbows are loosened, I used a large allen key to wiggle them out using the lasso Jsatr mentions.

40 is way too small.....It's got to be a 45.

So far I did the lazy way and crossed the hoses like the diagram showed to see if that will lessen the backfires....then as soon as I get a hold of some .45 casings i will get rid of the whole system itself.... thanks everyone for all the great help!!!

Sounds like you just needed a pilot screw adjustment....
