Swap went well, performed the crank sensor trick no problem! There is one question I have concerrning the Y8 intake manifold fitting the Z6 head; it's not a direct fit!

THe Y8 intake has an upper vacuum valley that the Z6 head doesn't have. There is a vacuum takeoff on the manifold (Y8) that goes to a "T" at the thermostat housing. Now I'm having cooling problems and the vacuum leak can not be sealed off.

My question is: Will the Y8 head fit the Z6 block? It seems to be close, but without doing a little trial and error (time and gaskets) I figured I'd ask the forum!

Thanks for any help! Sean

fixing the manifold is going to be a lot easier and less stressful than swapping heads
