Oil pump and front cover are on. Finished the valve reliefs with some final sanding on the edges. Also finished the pass side coil relocation. Had to narrow up the overall width to make sure there’s room for the door swing. Dropped in the lifters, using a special grip as to not damage anything. Modified the LG airbox/ ram air scoop because it had been jutting out of the grill.

Pushrods measured. Going to order some Manton dual tapered 7/16 pushrods. Headers are on. This was a major pain because the All Pros are drilled for 3/8-16 exhaust manifold bolts, so I had to team out the holes in the header flange. I used a stepped bit in an air ratchet in order to fit the right confines without removing the headers from the car.

Balancer is on.

Both coil brackets mounted.

Thanks man. No. After speaking to Ryne Cunningham about the car and my goals I decided to have him tune the car. Theres a couple niche things well be doing with the new combo that Ryne has experience with. Plus he is local and an awesome guy and you cant beat that.

Im waiting on some parts. Hopefully sooner than later but you know how it goes. Ill order up my pushrods Monday. Probably route my oil feed lines to the valve covers for the spring squirters. Lots of -4 line and fittings to do that.

I was really enjoying this thread, wonder how someone puts this much time and effort into this and then disappears for 6 weeks. Some more crazy **** must have happened?
