Great job on the work and photos! Now you have to clean the rest of your engine so it looks as good as the upper intake Glad you were able to fix it before you had major problems!

I have pretty much given up on cleaning the engine. I live down a dirt road and can never keep it clean. Plus I have the engine cover I am working on. Painting it all black with Chrome lettering. It looks good so far I just need to figure out how to spray paint the raised lettering.

I soaked the in injector cleaner that you put in the gas. I just poured a bottle in the bottom of a coffee can and laid them down in the bottom of it positioning them so the connectors didn't get soaked.

Yea, It drives great. I don't think it add very much power but the response is a lot better. Now my M.A.P. Sensor is bad so I will need to replace it. The bottom broke off of if and I put some ATV sealant on it to seal it back together but there were a few wires that were broken inside. Error Code P0107. This is the first time my check engine light has came on since I have owned the car.

Go get a paint pen for models. I used one i had lying aroun (prob 10 years old too ) on my engine cover to repaint it, and it was superb.

I am using modeling clay right now. I covered all the letters and then used a razor blade to get down to the top of them, then used alcohol to clean them and painted the letters with Chrome Car Trim paint. I also painted the V6 on the top of the engine cover it came out really nice. I will post pics when it is finished.
