      If the EBC has a pressure sensor on the manifold it wont really make a difference. The EBC will work its magic to get 29psi at the manifold.

      No problem. I don't work for any dealerships. I just found a copy of the program online. That way I don't have to deal with the parts guy, just walk in and hand them the part number.

      That is pretty toasty. Assuming the sensor is accurate you should look into dropping the stock oil "cooler" and separating the oil and coolant systems. When I drove through California in June my oil...

      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.

      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.
