Basically the same as the stock intake with an extra large port on the front left that I plugged. Some have the IAT sensor hole in the #5 runner and some do not. You need this for the sensor. You can drill and tap the hole if the one you find doesn't have it. There will be a flat boss for it. It is 3/8"NPT thread.
You will also have to drill and tap the small hose port on the back passenger side for the EGR coolant hose. I think it is 1/8"NPT. Just depends on which brass barb fitting you get for the hose.
