Default LS vtec tap head??

Before anyone say "search it first before putting it up for discussion"; I did do the search but came up negative. My questions is when tapping and plugging the vtec head; what EXACYLY mean by what it says. Well, I mean can anyone direct me to or show with pictures how to start drilling to end?????

and...

My GE LS/vtec kit came with two allen wrench plugs..Is both plugs going to be use in the build or is the other one was sent for an "in case I lose the original one??"

I sure am confused, and I think i'm making it a lot more harder than is originally is. Can a expert builder help me please.. It's my first build so I sure dont wanna mess up..kinda on a tight budget..THANKS!!!!

I've seen this and i printed it out and it seemed to be like my "bible" by all means. But reading to that part, Bambam just said tap and plug. Nothing really detailing and a DUmmie like me could pretty much do start to finish. thanks tho, but i've read that thread almost 40-50 times on the popper. Any more help guys??!?!?!!?!!

didn't the GE kit come with instructions?
If not, all you have to do is put the pipe tap into the small hole on the intake side to the far right corner. Also one plug is for the head and the other is for the sandwich plate. You can also try contacting GE and have them email or send you a instruction sheet.

no, don't need to drill, that's the whole point on GE's kit. NO drilling required. torque pipe tap in, then screw on flush plug.
