Question install ? about WSM and Guru

For those who have installed Guru on to their WSM do you heat tape all intake holes or just the three where you hook up Guru?

I just taped the ones that used the Guru adaptor, and closed the others.

My iQue hooks up differently -- it covers all 3 holes on one daisy-wheel vent -- but I am getting some leakage on one of the two remaining bottom daisy-wheels. It is a tiny bit bent.

If your other vents leak, seal them. If not, let it ride, IMO.

i was thinking about drilling a hole in the base of the WSM. Kinda like how they say to install on a kettle. What do you guys think?
