Anyone else see the issue he'* going to run into?

BP, you'll either need to dime trick the LIM coolant ports or find a set of coolant port o-rings for that gasket. Personally..I'd dime it. 20 cents, a little rtv and you are all set.

It was never an issue Boosty. I planned the 20 cent mod from the beginning. Good eye though.

I've heard some use jb weld and now some use rtv. Is one better than the other?

LIM'* are DONE, along with some detailing. I will post a better pic of the engine when I finish the detailing under the hood.

Here is a teaser from my phone...

I don't think it would matter which you use. RTV vs JB Weld. If you thought the two materials would expand and contract at different rates, then RTV would have more give.
