I did hammer the extra breather tube to fit the crossover coolant pipe, and siliconed it shut.
Grinding parts wasn't applicable on this...
I'm assuming that this FAQ is for the older 2.5RS?
Yes the notes were for the original GC RS's
If anyone would like to note the significant differences in any years after and let me know I'd be glad to modify the original post to reflect the changes.
edit: Once I get around to it I need to post up the chart I made for wiring in swaps.
Basically a pin by pin/ wire by wire how to for the popular model years.
So much stuff to do... So little time
