whats needed to flip the intake manifold to face the rear ?
You will need to cut the factory oil pressure port off of the valley cover and plug the hole with an NPT plug then relocate the oil pressure sensor, also will need to grind some of the honey comb down in the under side of the intake near the throttle body end to clear a couple of the factory valley cover bolts.

Do I have to tap the port for the plug ? How would a plug be installed otherwise ?

Yes drill and tap the port to take a 1/4 NPT plug valley cover will have to be removed.

^^^ For use opposite that of its original position. IE: front to rear.

If you don't mind me asking what would be the advantage of Running it backwards?
So guys can run the air cleaner into the cab I think.

I have a 5.7 2007 hemi n I have same question. Everything on that looks symmetrical, so it looks like it could be mounted either way? Anyone know?
