Default Skunk2 manifold causing short?

Did any of you with Skunk2 intake manifold run into issues with the Positive terminal shorting? I don't know if this definitely the problem but my car has a short and I know the manifold was really really close to the starter location. Just want to see if anyone else had this problem before I rip this thing off because it was a royal pain in the *** to get on. Thanks

Someone else did have an issue where the skunk2 was shorting on the starter aswell. Dont think he is a user of the forum but I saw it on facebook. If I remember correct it had to do with it being an na starter and using an nb starter fixed it.

Excellent I really appreciate that bit of knowledge. Do you know if an NB starter just bolts right up? If that's all it takes I'm glad to get one.

Excellent. I ordered one let's hope that's the problem because I'm not looking forward to taking this god-forsaken manifold off of the car again . It is a royal *****.

Nb starter uses two bolts when mounted on na instead of three
