i forgot what those bolt holes are for? cause i done a frount mount intercooler conversion ages ago so i cant remember what connect to it. is it for the top mount cooler? i can't remember cause if they dont serve me a purpose i'm just going to cut them off, which will make it easier for me to access the ex-man bolts for my custom ex-man

Just remember it's not as easy to just glue them back on later if you change your mind ;)

man i don't know about you but i bought an aftermerket exhaust manifold from ebay, and the tubes takes up alot of space. i can hardly get a spanner into the smalll gap to tighten up the bolts to hold the manifold to head. i had to buy off set spanner sets to tighten them up. even with that i could only tighten them up 10 degrees at a time!, so yeah cutting them off will give me much more space to tighten those bolts

No. Look, you should never have to cut into the head to make something fit. It's just not logical. In all honesty, yes those mounts will be useless after you go to a front mount, but thats not the point. Either get that manifold to fit, or, use the 3sgte manifold. Its tested and proven. You wont make any crazy gains with those cheap tubular manifolds found on ebay for 60 buclks. Plus, if your intercooler piping wont fit with these mounting holes, then you need to bend the pipe(not cut into the head) to make it all work.
