Thanks for the advice, Bob, and the words of encouragement, Bill.

Corvette....... what can I say? I sure don't want to mess it up! My wife can't understand why I removed the EGR in the first place, because I'm just spending more money to reinstall it now . It would be instant meltdown if I came to her and said, "I just ruined my upper intake... we need to spend $140 on a new one." She would quite possibly end my life on the spot

Luckily another intake isn't $140 and you get one in about a 1/2 hour...right?

Yeah, but I can't get one in 1/2 an hour.... unless he was referring to Bill Buttermore. I live in the same town as him, but I'll actually be working on my car at my parents' farm which is about 2.5 hours away.

I think it went pretty well. I forgot my digital camera, so no pics. We actually didn't put the car back together, because we're going to change the cam timing next weekend anyway. It seems like it would've been silly to reassemble when we're just going to tear it apart again, so we left it in pieces.

We ended up using a pneumatic rotary tool to enlarge the UIM hole for sleeving, and I think we got it just about perfect. The sleeve might have been just a little too loose, because when we inserted it with the JB Weld it would gradually slide downward through the hole. I believe we got it successfully secured in the end, though. I left it with a pretty thick bead of epoxy on the bottom side of the UIM surrounding the sleeve, and I'll sand it down for reinstallation next weekend.

Also, since my UIM was almost brand new we didn't break through to the TB gasket or water ports when we opened up the stovepipe hole. I feel we have a solid layer of epoxy surrounding the sleeve, and it will be a successful setup when all is said and done.

Thanks for all the advice guys, especially to Bill Buttermore for explaining some of these concepts in-depth over the phone.
