    I got mine and been trying to open it to see if I can upgrade the drive....

    Almost looks like security bits on the bottom

    Anyone try and replace the stock drive ... Seems quiet in the Edge front....

    'Inverted' Torx?

    Aren't they E-something? E-20 and what not? I've got a set of drivers around here somewhere. The Throttle Body on my Impala SS used them.

    You can also literally use a Torx Screw flipped over to turn them, too...

    I found what they are....

    Must be the partnership with Arris, as never been anything to slow people down from getting inside of them....

    I hope its standard inside like the bolt and previous, but starting to have my doubts.
