wouldn't drilling it make it slightly bigger than the original hole and in need of a slightly bigger bolt? where can i find said drill bit to perform this minor surgery and what does tapping involve?

If you can get a smaller bolt through and put a nut on it, do it. That will save you all kinds of trouble. If you can't, then tapping isn't out of the question. Tapping involves buying a tapping set, and then figuring out which diameter and thread pattern you will need. Next, you may need to drill out the hole, or maybe not. It depends on how stripped it is. Then use the provided tool in the tap kit to screw the tap into the hole. You might need to go pretty slow to avoid breaking it. Then you will need to buy a bolt that matches your taps diameter and thread pattern. Hopefully that helps.

That does look a lot better. But I've seen heli coils used on, rocker bolts, brakes and other high stress parts with out failing.
whoever used helicoil on that stuff is a crazy ass mofo....time certs are used in engine blocks .....

I think the turbine housing is cast aluminum as opposed to cast iron, but the process should be the same.
