I got an Alligator Performance race valve for Christmas. After reading about it now that I have it, I think I should have put a shim kit instead of a race valve. But seeing that nothing bad has really happened with race valves, I plan on just going ahead and putting it in. I was wondering if I was gonna have to put an o-ring or a washer on it? My girlfriend's Dad who is a mechanic told me I'm gonna have to but since it didn't come with one I was thinking maybe not. Anybody know what I should do? I rather be safe than sorry.

You can reuse the o ring on the fprv or just get a new one from local autoparts store. Super easy job. I tried the shim kit first and ended up doing the race valve.

Does anybody know what wrench size is needed to get the old FPRV out and put the PPE in?

I bought the shim kit... Played around with it... Couldn't get the valve off, so I bought a race valve as I started to round off my stock valve with impact 6 point sockets.. No clue how... Continuously tried every other day taking on and off the glow plug controller... Got pissed at it, drilled a hole in the top of it so I could finally reach the bolts underneath it with ease... Tried some more.. Rounded it more.. Ended up keeping the glow plug bracket off, zip tieing it up somewhere where it held tightly.. Tried more every other day, more rounding.. Got a viper security system installed at Best Buy and the dude put the siren right where my bracket was suppose to be mounted but it was zip tied out of the way... AWESOME... Probably going to have to rip my rail off to finally get it in. I still have yet to succeed. Ha. My opinion would be to throw either one in there if you can get it in. Beward it is tightened by the hand of GOD. ha

Well I've heard that you may have to grind the wrench being used down a bit to get rid of the taper on it so it fits flush....so nobody knows the size huh?
