Funny you should mention that. I made sure that item was in purchase agreement!! I didn't want it walking away while in storage for the next few months.

Because of engine angle, the steam tube should really be at the front of the engine not at the back. (air can get trapped at the front of the cylinder heads because it has no place to escape) This bulletin covers it. I actually didn't do this to mine because the alternator is mounted high and in the way. No problems so far.
Guys that did have problems with a hot running engine did the fix and it cures the hot/erratic temp problem with the LT-1.

Thanks for the heads up in his guys. I found a couple other threads on this and it looks like a pretty simple fix for piece of mind.
