    Any body else have a big block with stock manifolds? I wave 1 small issue, my dipstick tube is really close to one of the spark plugs and the DEI boot protector won't fit over that one and I keep melting the boot on that wire.

    Just try and straighten thatvbracket out a little, just be mindful of how far you go so it doesn’t leak down at the Pan. I ended up putting a a thicker o ring in the pan.
