1 Stars   DOES NOT FIT!!!!

I bought this because I wanted the tapped hole feature for my fan controller temperature sensor. After mounting, sealing, un-mounting, using new gaskets, and resealing the thermostat housing FOUR times, the housing still causes a leak!!!! While installed, this housing protrudes greatly beyond the lower intake surface, specifically on the left side beyond the bypass hole. The OEM housing does not do this. The gasket that comes with this kit does not even fit the housing hole pattern. I ended up throwing it away anyway for the Felpro one. The Felpro one doesn't fit the housing hole pattern either, BUT it fits the OEM housing perfectly. I ended up having to install the OEM thermostat housing and screw my temperature sensor into an unused port on my lower intake. I would not recommend this to anyone as the mating cast surface of the housing does not match up perfectly with the mating mounting surface of the lower intake - YOU WILL HAVE LEAKS. And then you are out $20, because it's been installed...

Bought this to replace my old 25 year old thermostat housing that has never been serviced before, so took a chance with this and am not dissappointed. Went on like it should, and worked great for my rebuild! I'd recommend this product for those who want to save the money and get the same performance!

I bought this a few weeks ago because I was replacing the thermostat and the old one was starting to pit. The fit was great! No leaks what so ever, so I'm super happy with my choice.

Could not get this to seal to my intake no matter what i tried ended up just drilling and tapping the original housing for the sensor. It does not have the seal ridge its completely smooth.

I bought this housing because the chrome one that was on the car did nothing but leak. The gasket on this housing has no adhesive so use Permatex High tack cement on the housing and manifold and you will have a solid non leaking bond. Couldn't be happier. BTW make sure to get the 2 bolts that are sold separately. They are a perfect fit and finish the job. After you have your non leaking thermostat cover on throw that chrome POS you have been thrashing for months in the trash!

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
