Wondering now if I'm going to regret later not getting a new RH122 cover instead of using the old one. Think it will leak/explode from that pic?
you are confused. The "cheaper" housing with the ribs is the better one. The screw holes don't line up with the original version because they have two different bolt patterns on the water neck. The water neck from the contour should be the one used because it is made of the same material as the thermostat housing. The bolt pattern for the head is the same
if you did not get the contour version, you will regret it when you realize that you could have saved yourself the hassle of having to replace it again soon.
