    To be fair, that port almost always the main culprit for coolant leaks on CT blower installs. It's one of the reasons people cut off that part of the manifold (That and to lower manifold temps).

    Hopefully that's the end of your troubles but I would still keep your eyes open. Good luck!

    Wait, this is a common issue? I haven't seen any coolant leaks since installing around a year ago.

    Can someone post a photo panned back a little so I can see where this is located?

    That pic is zoomed out as far as i could. Its the brass barb fitting that connects your coolant line to the intake manifold. You cant see it with eveything together. You are going to have to use a video scope or phone to get a good view of it.

    That's good news, but unfortunately others haven't been so lucky. If you search around you can find others who have had the issue. Definitely some people in this thread who were big posters.

    This is the coolant port for the manifold on the right side that connects to the head. I would say some of these leaks stem from people not sealing the port properly, but it's a pretty well documented issue all the same.

    It's in a fairly easy spot to see so you should know if it starts happening thankfully.

    Well.... this is my first time posting on these forums in a while, and first time in this thread. I have a 14 Si and just bought a used ctengineering kit with a 2.95 pulley and IMT aftercooler kit. This car is just a daily driver (I have a racecar in the garage) so I'm not after peak power, just want a quick summer daily. I'd really like to maintain the stock clutch and fuel pump this year so I'm probably going to buy a 3.15 pulley. When I bought the kit it did not include injectors so I'm probably going to order somne pnp 1000cc injectors from vit.

    Currently my car has a Buddy Club catless downpipe, k&n intake, humble performance ported lower intake manifold, and hasport upper and lower mounts on a Vit tune....

    Here's a first, I sold a PRL stage 2 GT30R turbo kit to get this weak ass supercharger kit... People will tell me I'm crazy but reliability is a huge priority with this car.

    You are brave then going with a 3.15 instead of a 3.6 pulley on a stock fuel pump and clutch. Good luck!

    I was thinking the same thing. 3.15" is calling for upgraded clutch and fuel pump.

    I read all 348 pages of this thread, there were plenty of comments made from people running a 3.15 with a stock fuel pump and clutch. I know better than to expect them to last forever but I'm hoping I can get one summer out of them. The car is just a daily driver and won't ever see a drag strip so.... wish me luck!

    Also, from the notes I took while reading I need a 1700mm belt for the 3.15 pulley and the IMT 2.25 aftercooler and the recommended spark plugs are NGK ILKR8E6 stock number 1422, can anyone confirm these?

    fuel pump is like $100 .... and super easy to replace. why not just replace it if your going to run a 3.15".

    you said reliability is a huge priority so .....

    How many of these were running an aftercooler and how long had they run it that way? I don't remember seeing many instances of people doing that and keeping us updated with how long that lasted. Also, people running the 3.15 without an intercooler make about the same power as the 3.6 due to even worse heatsoak so that could be a factor.

    Just trying to help you avoid issues that you could take care of right away instead of dealing with it randomly down the road.
