We used a second-generation (FC) manifold on Tim's GSL-SE, because it has a larger throttle body. Unfortunately, it left the EGR port in the center iron partially expose, so I had to devise a block off plate for it, since Tim didn't want to permanatly modify the engine by filling the port with epoxy.
||Here you can see the problem. The rectangular port in the gasket is the EGR port. It creates a massive exhaust leak if left uncovered.||
||A closer look.|
||there was a handy almost-flat spot on the bottom of the manifold in the right spot.||
||A little filing to make the area perpindicular to the gasket surface, a couple of drilled and tapped holes, and a bit of aluminum angle stock, and...|
||...the hole is covered.||
||A little closer.|
||The bolts are lock-tited in, of course.||
