      I had a little extra $ so I went for it and just got the full holly sniper kit from Mosley. I won't hijack the thread with the updates, but damn, that is a game changer! Header + H55 + Sniper = lots of fun. Going from the full desmog that's all...

      Maybe, but probably not. That thing just restricts in one direction to delay the choke breaker. If you put it in the other way it just overcomes the choke sooner. Only a problem if it's cold out and even then not a big deal. One can eliminate it...

      That's a really good point. If you don't have those tools it will probably save you money to farm that out.

      https://forum.ih8mud.com/threads/exhaust-manifold-leak-at-the-heat-riser-bushings.837745/ If you have to buy a large drill bit and tap (the way I would do it) it might be more cost effective to just take to a machine shop and ask them to do it...

      Carefully, after drilling the hole and (ideally) using a sized ream to make the hole the proper size. Or just the right drill bit. And oil. And being extra careful. Or maybe with a vice grip. But, again, carefully.

      Generally those are drilled, tapped and closed with an appropriate threaded plug. Edit: I would worry about an expansion plug coming out due to heat cycling.

      Just my opinion, but I would definitely remove the flapper, bolt or weld the holes shut, and put in a block off plate. It's not an important thing to have, with very little to gain and quite a bit to lose (leaky exhaust and cracked intake).
    • FishTacos
      The block off plate was intended as a seal for a cracked intake, to prevent vacuum leak, or as a guard against the possibility of the intake crackling. Mine was done with the flap locked in the hot position, but you still have to cut off the top...

      New to this forum (I have a 97 LC) perhaps rather than an LS, you could look at a 4 or 6 cylinder in-line? I have seen some 4 cyl diesel swaps? the original engines were around 130HP.
