It'* an upper plenum that uses a steel sleeve and a smaller EGR tube, to prevent the plenum from cracking near the coolant ports. They came out shortly after I bought two Dorman intakes for my cars, so I'll be replacing the plenum on the GP in the near future. (daily driver gets top priority)

Wish they made something OTHER than the paper gasket for the plenum on the SC cars. I'm gonna be doing that damn thing every 50k

^^Agreed, you would think Fel-Pro could step up and offer a better gasket for the SC cars.

The good news is though I got the aluminum LIM gaskets so those should be good until I blow the damn thing up.

Doesn't really bother me any. Not like this car will be clean any time soon (kinda broke from moving on my own lol), so why not have some mud on it!

I can only hand wash or use the ones where you spray it yourself. High pressured jets will clean my decal off the windshield

Shoulda got a better decal then. :P

But seriously, this one isn't touchless. It'* got those brush/whip things that clean the car. The only high pressure is on the rocker panels.
