I have been reading that they always were not split so I find it interesting mine is. I had good luck on my last setup not pushing water. LS9 gaskets, copper coat, tq to 85ftlbs, heat up the car and re-tq. Its crazy how much they suck down once the motor is ran and warm.
Sounds like you have a good game plan and good luck with everything as thats a sweet setup. The elbows need to be split as it helps even the airflow to all the cylinders from front to back.
