I had the same problem, but if your afraid you might tear one of the hoses, just buy a set of hose pliers, they work like a charm!When you remove the coolant nipples, do you just use some heat and force or is there another method? I tried using some leverage on it and they seem to be pretty well in there. Thanks
which gasket and manifold do you currently have?, it all boils down to that and the IACV porti seen a happy fa5 driver that bought this tapered TB but he didnt list his mods . i have flashpro plm header not cat . thermal gaskit TB spacer with thremal gaskits both sides . K&N intake . bypassed coolent into TB . and RDX injectors . im considering this TB . question is installing this tb can i use the thremal gaskit i have already instead of spending 22 more dollars on one . 64.5mm is that the same size as the stock intake because i dont want to change the stock intake or P2R spacer or TB thermal gaskits ?
