Thanks DT,

Kudos also to KNKREB, he puts spit & polish on them, but it is disheartening when folks get on here and have as of yet failed to utilize info already available for them, like you say a lot of effort goes into make the Place a worthwhile reference source.

What kind of intake (the pipe/tube part, not the manifold) is that in the first picture?

IC plumbing http://myweb.cableone.net/tbogemirep/ I've since replaced the flex exhaust for rigid tube, dummy me wasn't thinking flex exhaust was only 3 psi rated, hel-ooo can we say up to 15 psi boost going on there, oil tended to weep out past spirals used in flex pipe

This is it right? Do I just turn the nut under it with a wrench? The engine on or off?
