    Yeah, I ordered the FelPro PermaDry gaskets. Staying as far away from cork gaskets as I can. For now I wanted a simple OEM look under the hood, and these fit the bill. They're actual Ford covers, and...

    I'm a dummy. There's no ballast resistor in the cars. That's the radio noise capacitor. Don't know why I was getting those mixed in my head.
