    Would 12 how-to’s be considered gold membership for a couple years? Haha I mean if one is for 1 year that sounds reasonable lol ;)

    You realize that it's been 9 months since you started this thread? That is some awesome progress!

    Soon your baby will be back up and running.

    Back in the day on MSF, builds like this used to take 2 or 3 years. It's really refreshing to read your progress as you post it.

    Good to know lol I really don't have much to judge time taken on this compared to others. I def am doing more then most people do with their builds but a big part of it for me is putting in the time/work to learn how it all works.

    Update:

    This is going to be mostly pics so people can see what I am doing to get an idea of how it goes back together. Not as descriptive as the previous post mostly because if you have come this far I am confident you can do this without spoon fed notes.

    SO MANY PICTURES
    1. The JMF that @Maisonvi "thanks" sent me was missing the rubber grommet , mostly due to fire lol so I had to figure out my own.
    2. [​IMG]
    3. A 7/8" fites pretty well
    4. [​IMG]
    5. Installed Crank Position Sensor, make sure you line it up to the white tooth "20th" as close as possible
    6. [​IMG]
    7. Installed PCV Plate
    8. [​IMG]
    9. Installed Water Pump
    10. [​IMG]
    11. Installed Thermostat GATES 34044 180 Degree; Integrated Housing Thermostat; Includes Seal;
    12. [​IMG]
    13. Installed Oil Filter Housing
    14. [​IMG]
    15. Gave Dog Cheese Stick
    16. [​IMG]
    17. Added gasket to Valve Cover for VVT
    18. [​IMG]
    19. Installed the valve cover using THIS - RACETHETIX kit, worked pretty well. Shorter ones are for coils and cam sensor
    20. I used the Mahle gaskets from rock auto on the Valve Cover and they fit perfect.
    21. [​IMG]
    22. [​IMG]
    23. Then installed the CPE Manifold - @Sho told me about needing a bolt here to clear the turbski m10 1.5x30
    24. I also used the Mahle gasket here and it fit perfect
    25. [​IMG]
    26. Turbski is installed :):clap::clap2::clapclap::) PTE 5862 JB vband
    27. [​IMG]
    28. [​IMG]
    29. Installed Oil Feed Fitting - Just tighten it pretty good, there is no seal as the thread should seal it
    30. [​IMG]
    31. [​IMG]
    32. Installed the oil drain line, thought about making my own but I can only do so much. thanks @myarbro1
    33. [​IMG]
    34. Installed Oil Cooler with new gasket "these like to leak"
    35. [​IMG]
    36. Install the Knock Sensor " I forgot to take a pic"
    37. Install Injectors, crows feet, and then rail
    38. [​IMG]
    39. Water Pump Pulley

    50. Water Octopus Coolant Thing
    51. [​IMG]
    52. [​IMG]
    53. Installing the JMF was not as bad as anticipated. I used the single runner super tig for adapted performance @Adapted_Performance and m8 1.25*30 + washers
    54. I also bought this kit and with a 1/4" ratcheting screw driver it works perfect to get to the hard to reach spots Balldriver Power Bits, 7pcs
    55. [​IMG]
    56. 2200cc eBay injectors in @Sho xoxo 4x 210lb 2200cc Fuel Injector For Bosch Honda Audi Mazda Dodge GM 0280158829

    58. I was a little worried about the fit for these with the JMF rail but they worked well with a little nut spacer.
    59. [​IMG]
    60. Bottom one needed a spacer because my bolts were too long and I did not want to make another trip to ace.
    61. [​IMG]
    62. It's looking good and everything is secure , still more to do.

    All other steps are wholly inconsequential.

    I thought I got you extended already man. I know I set up those who posted links to their how-tos in the free upgrade thread.

    Anyways, love the cheese stick on the dog.

    Great work man keep it all up! On the hpfp when putting it on the cam I ended up taking the spring out so I could set it on and then just reinstall the other half like you do when installing hpfp internals. I put a dab of clean oil in there when putting the little piston piece back in against the hpfp lobe, so it is that simple right? Nothing I should worry about with it right?

    If you put the HPFP on there so that it is not lined up it will slide over the cam lobes. You can then turn it which compresses the fuel internals spring and then you can align to to the final resting place. But yes you could also just do the piston part first and then do the HPFP internals side.
