What drilling and tapping? You HAVE to do it when you PI swap a 96-98 car, they have 2 sensors and the 99-up combines them into 1. That is why that flat spot is on the crossover to begin with. For a 99+ its still a good idea to do it and then install an aftermarket water temp gauge. The stock one is unreliable at best. Although not as bad as the stock oil gauge which is literally an idiot gauge.

Get a speedhut or autometer water temp gauge. Prices vary, the google is your friend, she knows much. Gauge goes in a pod you put on your pillar or in the cluster bezel or whatever. The wire (or mercury line for mechanical) runs from the sensor through the firewall grommet to the gauge. For wiring I generally bug into the radio harness. Power/dimmer/lighting is all right there that way. The sensor just screws into the hole you drill/tap.

For the crossover I pull it when the intake is brand new so no gasket issues. 3 bolts under each end. Put it on a drill press and go slow working with small bits up to 9/16. Then hit it with a 1/2 NPT (I THINK, can't remember for sure) and then clean the hell out of it when done so there are no shavings in your cooling system.

Do you think I should just get new o rings and put them on all injectors ?
