    @RobSBP I havent driven since friday due to the snow, so i havent had a chance yet. The way its looking, probably wednesday at the earliest :(

    What did you use to cut the gasket? Just a normal knife? It seems too hard for that, but i dont have a dremmel tool or anything

    The easiest way to do this is to angle the blade at 45 and 135 degree to make 1-2mm deep channel.

    Make the channel just a bit longer then you are all set. Maybe another 2mm just to be safe.

    When you install it, toque all bolts as tight as when you remove it.

    Stock only come with one orange o-ring on top of intake manifold. Use the mod plastic gasket on top of the spacer.

    I dont know if its in my head or not, but i feel like theres a slight change in throttle response down low, but you wont regret buying it! :D

    I didnt get any pics, but once you know your pretty much just making a sandwich its easy.. didnt have to disconnect a single hose!

    How did you make the notch without going through? Which tool did you use?

    I used a regular utility knife, and just started shaving the plastic. I made the notch a little farther than in the picture though

    I will be doing this on the weekend. Did you take off the cowel to get in there to do this or was there enough room? Also, which side does the white gasket go on? The side closest to driver side or passenger side? Thanks.
