STEP 4:
(Installing the Reversed Intake Manifold)

Use all new gaskets for the manifold/TGVs and the TGVs/heads. Once again, you do not want to remove this to fix a stupid mistake once it is on. I found it easier to completly assemble the manifold TGVs first, then carefully lower them onto the heads. This is a great time to have a buddy. Be extra careful that none of your new lines get pinched, come off, or are damaged when you lower the manifold down onto the heads.

You will probably have to remove the alternator to allow for room until it is bolted down.

ALL OF THE WIRES AND LOOMS WILL REACH. YOU SHOULD NOT CUT OR SPLICE ANYTHING IN THE HARNESSES. IF YOU ARE, SOMETHING IS WRONG (read the above line again if you are thinking about it)

Everything should fit and reach if done correctly. Just work on re-running the brake booster line (now on the front passenger side), the PCV lines, BOV line, etc. Make sure all of the connectors are plugged in. The cam sensor plugs are easily missed, so make sure you get them.

You will notice that the coolant resivour holes don't match up with the threaded standoffs on the (now passenger side) of the manifold. You will need to slot the back hole of the resivour to fit two bolts thru it.

I wish I had pics of this manifold off of the car. COMING SOON.
