Default gasket change this weekend

Wish me luck as I'm going to take my SC and intake off and put new gaskets on as I have an intake gasket leak. I am also changing the SC coupler and oil. I also am changing the radiator as its leaking as it has a crack in the plastic tanks. I am taking the oil pan off and cleaning it out as I'm going over to Amsoil. I'll take pics of my work and post them when I get back Monday night.

Ok I got my change completed and all went well for the most part. I had to call Billboost a few times and get some pointers on torque specs and getting the oil pan off and getting the 90 deg plastic angle that goes between the intake and the thingy that goes under the altenator. I ended up breaking it inside the intake so had to get a new one. Then I went to go get a lower radiator hose (2 times) The 1st one was bad and I was really mad becasue I had to go to Geneva (30 minues away as the lazy bumbs in Penn Yan were all closed) and it took time out of my work so had to work really late last night to get all done.
I did the oil pan gasket and had trouble getting that out. Come to find out the low oil sensor was over top of the oil pick up tube. Its a miracle I didnt break the sensor. I took the sensor off the oil pan before I put it back onto the engine. I also had to take off one of the metal hoses that runs from the oil filter to the cooler on the radiator to get the oil pan bolt out. I got the really dirty oil pan all cleaned and some nice Amsoil inside my engine My car runs good and started right up 1st thing after all my work. And yes I ran my car for about 60 minutes before I took the pan off.
I'll try to get some pics up tonite after I get home from work.
