There are design constraints attached to all engineering projects. The constraints given to the factory engineers may not apply in your case. That is why so many people modify their cars from the OE design. The key is in knowing what you doing. Making a change because because it sounds sexy, or Bob next door did it, may yield disappointing results. You need to understand the starting point design, where you want to go, and what you need to do to achieve your goal. You may luck out making ad hoc changes but it's not good design practice.

If sticking to the factory design works for you, that's great, but it does not automatically invalidate someone else making modifications to suit their purposes.

Hi everyone. Thanks for your insights. My heat cross over is not blocked off and I do not want to take the intake off to do so. And since I drive the car in the cold weather... I've decided that I will reinstall the heat riser because I think this will help with cold weather operation if the car. 

Does anyone know if the original style flange clamps are still available?

Flange clamps?

Nor Cal... Sorry... Didn't know what to call them but the exhaust shop made the ones that are on there now and they are just flat plates... I thought the stock flanges would work better when I get them to install the heat riser.

Thanks Trader. I'm going to buy the damper kit and the gasket yes... I was asking about the OEM style flanges though... I just didn't know what to call them. I think this will fix the ticking noise coming from that manifold to pipe connection. I didn't know the heat riser existed or I would've installed all this stuff the first time around.
