Replace the plastic coolant fitting with a steel one from the dealer, or if it'* already steel, clean the paint off.

Polish the paint out of the injector bosses also. You want your o-rings to contact aluminum, not paint.

Looking good! I envy your accessory bracket.

yeah its steel, i was going to tap it off but ended up no because i looked as if it had black paint on it from before so i figured it didnt matter, but ill get it all off there. as for the injector holes i knew that but it would have been a bitch to mask so i figured id just paint and clean after.

Neat trick for the injector bosses before painting:

Vaseline. Apply it with a q-tip or the tip of your little finger. Wipe it off after painting.
