Yes, that's really frustrating
I'm using a 7/8inch IM to TGV spacer right now just to clear the alternator.
With the picture of the PW IM, I think I can use a 2inch IM to TGV spacer to clear the alternator ( wishful thinking).
I really don't know what is the difference with the 06-07 Euro STI to USDM STI with regards to reversing IM. I'm using 34.5 inch alternator belt already and I have to remove my alternator pulley just to be able to put the belt. I read somewhere that you are using 34 inch belt. I tried that before but I can't do it.
And yes I will cut that TB coolant pipe when I clean everything before firing up the engine. Thanks
