You are really cranking this out. I don't usually pay too much attention to GWs, as they are a little too uptown for people like me, but you're getting results, and this is a fun build to...

Sometimes it's faster to make something right than to wait for a ready-made part that's already just right

Glad you asked. I'm going to need to deal with this too sooner or later.

I have a nice one I'm not using. Doesn't have the tin oil splash shield underneath, so you'll have to reuse the one from your stock iron manifold. I'll try to give it a thorough inspection tonight...

The idea of a packaged solution has its appeal, but they went and stuck it on a single-plane manifold. Great if you're running 7500 RPM at Santa Pod, but not for 99% of FSJs. Compared to a...

Any chance the seals got installed backward?

Could the surface they seal against have been damaged during the operation?
