I'm going to be placing my order for a bunch of goodies for my '05 and I was curious as to whether or not the decomp plug was still an issue. Since it was for the '04, I'm assuming it is much the same for the '05 as well. If anyone has some direct knowledge one way or the other, I'd appreciate it if you'd clue me in. Danke...SC

You're talking about the rubber coated plug that pops out of the head thus spilling oil out over the exhaust. NO the 05 doesn't have it anymore. Mine has just a blind cast hole with no plug at all. Looks like they eliminated the obsolete machining operation thus saving the need for a plug.
