So I finally got around to fixing my Masterpiece Thundercracker. It was easier then I expected. I simply used a 1/16th tap with a tac hammer to push the pins out and properly install the intakes. If you attempt this make sure to knock out the pins from the outside. Meaning you should be hammering on the outside of TC pushing the pin towards TCs center. Also you will need to brace the inside piece of plastic that the pin is coming out of.
