Bill and I also spoke about the differences inside the nose drive when it comes to draining.
Check out the baffles.

He'* not trying to convince you into an "appendage" is he? Looking at the M90 I don't see where it'* possible.

Maybe I can practice on the old one......j/k

I got a modular set up for it and a very conservative 3.4" pulley for initial tuning just to be on the safe side.

Just pushed the pulley on the the shaft and the snout is now ready for the reinstall back on the body.....oh ya Bill has the mate.

Hey Bill, look closely at this pic and see the 09/16/03 stenciled on the LIM. Now we know when the Gen V was made.

Paul, kiss your EGR port bye-bye.

Please tell me rather quickly that you're blocking the EGR where it enters the LIM from the valve, rather than where the EGR feeds into the SC from the LIM.

The integrity of your GenV SC depends on it. :P

Why cover it when I could leave it open for cooling since you are plugging the port internally.

I will fill and blend the EGR port in the inlet before final smoothing/polishing. I'll leave a small air gap directly above the LIM.

After reviewing the EGR path and your block location, I don't think an external 'breathing hole' like I put in EK98'* UIM will be necessary.
