It is still plastic, but seems to be made better. It's biggest benefit is having everything machine threaded, temp sensor, plug, and thermostat cap bolts. It's a HUGE improvement. I think the only aluminum one I have found would be from HTP, and they are quite pricey.

I will try and repost the pics, I think it was my bad on that one. There are only three, and not extremely detailed, basically before, off, and after..LOL I got to working, and forgot to take all the pics I should have.
