That looks good. How can the aluminum be cheaper than the plastic one? It also looks like it uses the L67 TB.

I wonder if the aluminum will really aid in slowing the degradation issue on the lower intake gaskets??

Here is another link talking about welding the coolant ports closed on the lower manifold.

hmmmmm,,, very interesting !!! SURELY we all will soon find out what all is involved with changing over to the aluminum on the '95-03.

Is it possible that the only issue on the change-over will be the throttle body?
AND, if so, hopefully the "throttle body adapter" that was mentioned will solve that.

Gosh, by studying the pictures, it makes me think that the maybe the aluminum is very nearly a "bolt-on replacement."

That would be T O O C O O L !!

BE SURE TO LET US KNOW
