I got the old engine out and things are really starting to happen now......I just have one concern......When I am swaping the intake manifold, it seems as though there is a hole right on the corner of the head next to the last intake mainfold hole. I heard is is to let some coolant in so that the throttle body does not freeze. Regard less, the holes are actually shaped differently on the 2 engines. On the D16Y7 (the new engine) this hole is round, however on the D15B7 (the old engine) this same hole is like a square shape (not really a square but definitely no where close to being a circle.)
-My question basically is: Which intake manifold gasket should I buy......the one for the d16 or the one for the d15? If you guys could help me out with this I would appreciate it. Thanks once again.

the intake manifold for the d16 is different than that of the d15. I am going to put the d15 intake manifold on the d16 engine but the gaskets are different and that hole for the coolant concerns me. I just wanted to know if i should go with the d15 or d16 intake manifold gasket. thanks for asking for clarification instead of ignoring my post....hope to hear from you soon.
