21/64 is the bit. Take your time, use a LOT of anti seize grease.

Anyone have any trouble drilling the hole in the exhaust manifold. I was told by a couple people, that due to the metal the exhaust manifold is made from, its a chore,and not advisable. Im sure with all the post and pics, if I take my time, i wont have much if any trouble...

1 more question, the gauge (autometer) instructions call for a 18 gauge wire. All the connectors I have is for 16ga. I cant see any problems using the 16ga, instead of the 18ga. As far as I can figure, its better to go bigger ( to an extent )than smaller.

Going to a larger wire on this will not be a problem.
