I was listening to a shuir of Rav Hershel Schacter and he mentioned that the Steipler kept 2 days yomtov undercover in Bnei Brak. I think he mentioned the source as the Orchos Rabbeinu,even though he did not mention it outright (He mentioned a five volume hanahagos sefer, OR fits the bill). Does anyone know where I can find this?

    I heard the Griz kept two days even in Meah Shearim! I assume you mean because of the Rambam about the messengers?

This is indeed in Orchos Rabbeinu. It can be found in Volume II p. 136 of the 2014 edition. Here is an image of it:
