    Yeah what was the problem?

    I have used them in the past and found as long as you make a custom pipe up from the water box to the exhaust tip it's all ok.

    The extender pushing the water box back and the connection to the manifold are all good if you take your time on alignment.

    Still nothing beats the manifold install tho.

    The bung hole for the O2 sensor sits right over the bell on the exhaust manifold so unless you cut off the bell, it is no wonder people say it doesnt read well or at all...I would have had to drill a hole thru the bell or cut it off completely to make sure I got a reading....

    R&D should be ashamed of themselves for making this thing, and when I see Bill at WF's this year I will tell him this thing is JUNK!!!!!!!

    Yeah you have to drill a whacking great hole in the bell but its no big deal. You can do it with the manifold in situ so I guess it's an easy option for some people.

    Welcome to my world about a month ago. I waited and waited for it. Emailed Jerry he assured me it was the correct part. Called R&D they said it would be fine. I couldn't have been more disappointed...oh wait I bought a SCOM. Ended buying a drill and tap from Bistro tool on Amazon, a $16 hot knife from harbor freight. Drilled it using my little sears drill press. No Problem. I'll have to go take a picture of mine, it's all crunched up from tightening the $50 clamp I had to buy to make it work.
