    I had cut my failed 06 manifold in half to view how thin it is,

    maybe they can make it a sticky?

    Before you drill, make sure you take a file and make the area flat & clean of paint,
    Mark it dead center and drill a pilot hole first, if the smaller hole is off center you can correct it before you drill with the bigger bit,
    it is best to use a drill press, and a vice to hold your manifold from moving,
    Good luck

ID:	298705I did it in my machine shop. Square up the face and machined it flat perfectly square. As skigolfnut said, if your off slightly, your done. I also pressure tested it while its in your hand. extra couple of minutes to check will save you some head aches later.Click image for larger version.
