As far as I know, this person in wrong. I have owned both
manifolds, and they are identicle. I have also seen both valve covers. If
I'm not mistaken, the early valve covers (like my `84 T-coupe) had the
indent for the shorter manifold (seperated runner type). The later covers
(like the `87-88) did not have the indent. Besides, why would they shorten
the manifold on the engine, when at the time, it was only available in the
Bird. These cars are a beast and need all the low end they can get. I
think this person was misinformed.
