You are correct about being at the right place.
BTW... Welcome to the club of black. When clean..it'* awesome..the rest of the time.. yeah..torture.
If you plan valve cover gaskets, hold off until you are doing LIM'*. I wish I had. At that point they are much easier to get at. I'd probably hold off with plugs and wires as well if it'* running ok.
My comment about the trans was because it'* ADDICTIVE (not that I'd know
). Couple black Ei'* were smoking off the excess rubber last night..lol With a stage 3 plan, you'll need a trans w/o a question. I know the place to go also.
Oh...and holler at Haro for that threaded rod, washers and nuts. You need to hockey puck that motor mount.
