That's what they tell me.

Ps your plate better say "lol Clark" or 2 many bits" or " Wtf"
If we do start this 16-bit EJ207 in 32-bit car thread, I can have more adapter plates made for the rails and throttle body. It might be slightly more expensive than welding up the manifold, but it would be easier for most I think. I could also make a cutting template for the driver side head modification; perhaps a small metal template you bolt to the sensor mounting hole and then trace the modified hole profile onto the head.

I was wondering about this. This motor is really, really dry by now as it's been on the rack for a few months in every conceivable angle. The other part of this is how I will prime the oil cooler. It has a thermostat that should prevent oil from going into it until the motor is warmed up. I'd hate to have a huge burst of air go through the system when that opens up for the first time... I'm going to try to pre-fill it to the best of my ability I think.

2) Rude or disrespectful behavior; impudence.

Thank you. I got to put it on the actual intake manifold this weekend (the powdercoating was a disaster, but that's enough for another whole thread... ), and it fit perfectly. I'll have the gaskets this week for final fitment.

Thanks. With my luck it will blow up on the first start up though.
