It'* done! Car drives like a dream now and is leak free.
Here'* what all was done:
New UIM (APN sleeved upper)
New APN 1/2" stovepipe
New aluminum LIM gaskets
New PCV valve
New MAP sensor
New belt tensioner
New heater hose and coolant elbow O-Rings (the elbow looked brand new)
New coolant (all Prestone Dex-cool)
New fuel injector o-rings
New front suspension end link (one was completely missing, unbeknown to me)
Throttle body, IAC, and MAF sensors cleaned
LIM pressure washed
All in all, took about 8 hours to do. Mechanic only charged me $200. I helped with most of it.
My car going up on the lift:
Some of you are probably going to cry when you see my throttle body. Here is a before pic:
And an after:
Here'* my old upper after it was taken off the engine:
And the old stovepipe area:
Dirty, but it actually hasn't failed yet.
This made me glad I decided to go ahead and do this though, some of you may cry at this too:
Lifter valley was clean, but the LIM gaskets were crapped to hell.
Look how bad that is!
New aluminum gaskets.
Everything all put back together.

Good stuff, now I can drive my car without worry.
Though it'* still my weekend garage queen.
