+1.....but I had to create the relief myself....Chris told me the development was done with the secondary valves/motor/linkage removed. The new plate has relief all around...sorry no pics. The crank case vent line will reach....mine was caught between the frame and valve cover, once that was free...route between the throttle bodies and all was ok. The temp sensor mount for me was a bit tight but I put the screws in from the bottom up, the holes were smallish....just had to encourage the holes to loosen up with a poker....

I also found the mounting of the filter to the new plate a total bitch....couldn't hook the lip for at least 20 minutes but now its a 'Honkin' good time
