      I would prefer to keep the big rad, but it's gonna be a really tight fit. Looking at some 28x7x2.5" intercoolers. Which seems like a pretty big intercooler for a 200hp 8v :(

      How about soldering on 3 wires, and running them outside the ECU to a connector, and running an external MAP sensor like these?

      2 different valve stem seals?

      They were sold as being all the same. But are clearly different. There is 2 of each kind per package, but one part number 022-5006

      So which is intake, and which is exhaust?
