Default RE: UT-160 turbine? Feedback please?

A quick question for all that build turbines.

Would it be a good idea to drill the heads and add safety wire for the 6 screws that retain the NGV to the tunnel or is that overkill? I thought that upping the power, such as the UT160's high thrust capability, would also mean upping the safety factors of the turbine. I am new to DIY turbines and would hate to start up and scrap this turbine cause of lack of assembly knowledge........



Thanks all
David
