Hi Timbo,
What have you heard so far, to make you ask the question?

RE: Dril and Tap VS. Helicoil

If the part has to be put on and removed very few times, use aluminium, if it must be removed often, use helicoil. That's the rule we use for the racecar parts.Probably for different kind of cars this rule does not apply
