That'* only if you use the plastic elbows. The aluminum elbows should be fine(o-rings are included). But because they are a newer design that just came out on the market recently, we don't have much data on the newer elbows.

i just put the aluminum one in mine, sealed on the first stab, seems alot of people have trouble even getting the new plastic ones to seal

and i got the whole upper intake, because they can break the plastic around the gasket frames and it wont seal right. mine was an aftermarket one i did about 6-7 years ago and it was coming apart again so im glad i did. the dorman one i listed in the tech thread comes with all the upper stuff for 67 from rock auto so considering you would have to buy the orings and gaskets separate its not that much more.

But when i went to order the aluminum elbows, although they showed up earlier when i searched the part number on rockauto they for some reason aren't on there anymore..i guess ill have to get them locally..anyone know why?

The seller on EBay says "ON FACTORY BACKORDER UNTIL THE 3-4 WEEK OF NOVEMBER" so it may be December before you get the elbows.
If you cannot wait, and have to have an elbow, then the Dorman Nylon 6,6 elbow which is DORMAN Part # 47065 will work, but either get the AC Delco O rings ACDELCO Part # 1534066, or replace them with the 2 orange O rings that you will get in the Fel-PRO LIM Kit, I am not positive, but the Fel-PRO ones look/work as well as the AC Delco ones, I did not even need any RTV on mine, I just used a little silicone lubricant, but a little RTV won't hurt if you want to use some for added protection from leaking.

Advance has the Nylon elbows for around 4.19, and Rockauto for 1.96 plus shipping.

Tip: When inserting the elbow into the LIM, and tightening the tensioner assembly to the block, wiggle the elbow just a tiny bit as tightening, that way the elbow stays straight in both bores, if it gets cocked a little I am pretty sure that can cause leaks.
