    The new Zs and super Zs have a larger discharge opening and this is what it looks like. I got the plans in order ti cut it out and then did it. Will improve cut quality.

    If you have the old bac vac you will bave to buy an adapter/bracket but the new ones will already come with it.

    Crappp..... Believe me, I hate being the sour puss here, but I still stand by my thoughts that this is a band-aid treatment. What I mean is, I do believe opening the discharge up will relieve some discharge pressure. But I don't believe it's a silver bullet cure for everything. In other words, I see other areas that could be improved.

    I'll stop there and I hope I have not offended anyone....

    But by all means report back about how it does and what difference it makes.
