      Those are molded into the pipes from VF. It's supposed to allow more clearance between the pipe and motor section of the driver side fan.

      Mine never did line up.

      How did you come to that conclusion? Huichox4 knows to heat cycle and re-torque. I was the one who re-torqued his motor, with a recently calibrated torque wrench too.

      It's low because of the thread pitch. Fine thread(raceware) + low torque = semi-fine thread(arp) + high torque. The end result is the same clamping force. huichox4 and myself are both running...

      Where is it leaking? The ends, drain, fitting, welds? Is it the correct crack pipe, the 12v and 24v are no interchangeable. I think the 12v is shorter.
