I checked the width of the runners and on the new manifold they are about 3mm'* wider on the inside. I tried putting the inner runner tray from the new mani into the old one and it wouldnt slide all the way down no matter which way I tried it, they stuck out about a quarter of an inch.

Better high RPM tq by 0.3 or so. Consider it stock.

Yea toobad its orange though lol Can of paint says Chevrolet Orange-Red but it comes out as hardcore orange. I was gonna go with blue at first but I thought that might stand out too much and I wanted to be still close to a stock looking engine. BTW I superglued my IAT sensor or whatever that is to my intake pipe. It kept coming out where I had it before and now that I glued it in there it comes in excellent contact with the air.

well then i guess you have an orange theme going on.

I used glue on my IAT sensor and it worked well too.
