    Wow, been more than a month since I updated this, but it’s pretty much put together. I need to fix front brake lines and am waiting for a few things to come in before I can put it in the car

    Had a fail and had to re-do timing. So while waiting for the friction washers and crank bolt, I got impatient

    I have ZERO rooms to talk. I put together my intake side and saw my Injector harness sitting on my table. Son of a bitch I said to myself.

    Ha ha! This is true.

    Welp just a small update. Been working in the shadow like a true stalker I am. Engine is in. I fished my gauges wire into the car and labeled them. Still need to wire up all my gauges but I figured those can wait until after.

    All these trying to figure out what bolts/hoses go where is taking all my time lol!! If I were to do this again, I’d label all the bolts and hoses

    Ziplock snack baggies work excellent for bolts with a sharpie. Then shit is somewhat organized.
