Jim they didn't believe me until you posted, must be because of the power you made, LMAO!!!
If it was because of power, wouldn't he (gimmemore) knew the least?

This happened after a lot of EVOs' running 5857 and some 6262 had the issues and some more than once, Precision issued warranties and suggested the restrictors even in DBB. When I went to pick up my spare center cartridge my friend told me the seals are improved, still wouldn't hurt and I run one.
