I do not believe so. However, you must make a point to check the level after warming it up.

Thanks again for your help....I should have it on tonite. I will try it first without grinding any down, if that becomes a pain then I will grind it some. I will let you know how it goes!

Got the CAI in, but held off on the T-stat. I forgot a bag and my buddies drip pan was under a car with a leak.....no place for the fluids! Hopefully sometime soon!

So you actually shave down the outside of the rubber part to make it fit into the metal hole? Do you just shave little by little until it fits snug?

No! Shave a bit off the metal flange - 0.25mm to be exact. Good luck!


Clarification added to post #1.

Went to order these parts (TStat and Radiator Cap) from the Autozone website and looks like they are branded bu "Duralast" now? Does that sound right?? Can somebody verify this to make sure I'm not making a mistake?

Do not fear - Duralast is just an alternate brand name. It is still a Motorad t-stat.
