    HPS teamed up with THR (they sell the Hardball'r intake or whatever :shrug:) so you can buy it from there aswell.

    The Livernois package is a great idea, just the cost is too much in my eyes.

    if you just get adaptors , you have to find longer bolts yourself and buy gaskets yourself , and it will not clear a stock hood without milling the intake down , the livernois kit comes with everything needed and will clear a stock hood .......not knocking HPS that is a great price and if you dont mind finding longer bolts and dont have a stock hood it looks like a great alternative to silicone so I dont know why more people dont use these ....

    felpro gaskets will work fine , you dont have to remove the hat to get the Orings off , you can get the Orings at advance or autozone too if you can get someone to actually open up a paper catalog to look it up LOL .....

    I guess I didn't really follow completely but did you ever figure out what was causing your massive coolant leakage? Did you do a compression test to make sure it isn't the head gasket (even though I'm certain it isn't)?

    When I was having problems with coolant blowing through the RTV I finally just bought like 12 quarts of super duper cheap off brand non synthetic oil and changed it after each try.

    Ford gets gaskets from Felpro so I would assume they are probably the same gaskets ......

    I read some where that nipple( coolant tube ) from 98 is same as 99+ nipple ? cause I dont really know how to take out the water pump and take that nipple out.

    Just order felpro gasket ( black with red rubber ) look like its very good quality product.

    The water pump just needs to be unbolted and pulled off.

    You then hammer out the nipple by tapping it towards the front of the engine from inside the lifter valley (what the plastic intake sits over).

    No...the pulley has to come off. When refilling with coolent, fill at the thermostat housing until full. The replace and run it for a few minutes and refill. Then fill the reservoir.

    Did you sort out the o-ring and water pump nipple? And having read this thread, I don't have a warm fuzzy that you did. If you did not, you are still going to have a leak...
