    well, we've got the motor in and we keep running into problems!! i'll be sending an e-mail to scoggin dickey, and i'll post on this other GM site, but i though i'd ask here 1st. ok, i especially ordered this intake manifold as it has the egr provision, now we ordered a holley carb but sent it back because the egr would not fit (or the egr would fit but not the carb), now we ordered a carter/afb and the same thing.

    does anyone know what size or what would go here (right next to thermostat hose), a water temp guage does not fit (or adapters that are in kit)

    The threaded hole next to the rad hose is where you plumb
    in your EGR from the exhaust manifold.
