I have a picture of one like that but it would take a while to find it.
You'd still have to weld a support arm onto the left rear that goes down to an intake manifold boss that is now available.

My boost sender doesn't have an orange rubber on it. It was replaced before I got the car.
That's what I thought. I will be keeping my shortneck IC and cutting up the intermediate manifold. Will have to weld a plate across the opening where I cut the manifold, so figurued I would just weld on a bung on that flat surface...or something like that. If you come across any picts, much appreciated.
