    R&D intake grate and girdle install question

    Just installed SF pump shoe insert and R&D girdle kit.. However when placing the intake grate in place I noticed it doesn't sit perfectly flush with the rideplate, and when I say not perfect, I mean maybe the width of a penny is how much it is off.. Will this hurt anything once siliconed and bolted on??

    Just to see what previous intake grates were like I placed my stock one to it and my old Riva one, the Riva one was pretty much flush, maybe a hair off and the stock one maybe even a little too flush and was slightly recessed..

    It cant be the girdle or pump shoe insert because the other grates seem to fit fine.. Would being off just the width of a penny or so hurt anything? Thank you

    Just got off the phone with Glenn at R&D.. He told me that the grate is not supposed to be flush with the rideplate and they were intended to hang down slightly.. For whatever reason i dont know..Sooo I guess I'm good, and for anyone else that was wondering or had already grinded theirs down like I've seen before
