Cutting it will not ruin the support for the water block. You can do what you want, but why ruin it when you can get the right part?

Haha yea exactly that's why I got her a family car. The STi is daddy's car. I don't let anyone drive it. If I let my wife drive it she would spin all 4's every time she started from first biggrin.gif
