Swapping in things that weren't there from the factory is a pretty ambitious thing these days, with the computer / CANBUS / and other things that require coding. So no judgement from me!

And, even the best of us get to laugh at ourselves. Can't say I've been there, specifically with an unseated plug; but I've been plenty of similar places where I say...jeeze, I'm a dummy.

Super glad you got it figured, rookie mistake or not!

Thank ya'll for the help along the way. I still have to torque the valve body, install the pan, get it level, fill it up, finalize the wiring, and wrap up the interior and with vacation around the corner, it may be a week or two until I get this wrapped up, but I will post back once it is all wrapped up, assuming another issue doesn't pop up first. Thanks again!
