Dorman pi intake on npi heads

Will I have to use the integrated dorman gaskets and a guess job with the rtv coolant passages..
Or can I take out thedirman gaskets and use a stock pi intake gasket,it it seals properly on the dorman .
I also need to tap it for the 2nd coolant sensor, what bit and tap size do I use.
Also if any one has a free pi alternAtor bracket I shur could use one, I will make my own valley run,I've done it eith no issues before using stock npi nipple,clamps And heAter hose..
Im doing this mod because my sct chip has it on the mod list as the last one then I will run that intake with A superior chip over my current Jerry chip thats setup for minimal stuff

No mention of issues with npi heads and dorman at the water jackets..also I know what gaskets to use just wondering IF I can somehow use the ford gaskets instead.
I read lots of contradicting info on gains/losses of HP but I figure it will forshur be better than my npi dorman and if it is a bit smaller than a ford I shouldn't gain as much in high rpms where my car does perform at anyways but has a better low end curve,which would be better imo as I have a good top end already justva little sluggy until it his 30mph

Lol,bigbang sucks....
I've done pi intake swaps before but last I remember I had a typhoon intake so same exact as a pi just metal.
Im thinking I will lay the dorman water jacket gasket on the head as a template as where to rtv .with a ford intake I layed down the gasket and it made it obvious...I won it on ebay auction for 22$ shipped and its brand new just open box so I hope it has all the install hardware. The intake was originally purchased from American muscle and says made in USA, I do know there's a china and USA made version of this intake and what I read they are a bit different , I will post more about it when it arrives .
