Dealer for the outlet gasket, red gasket maker (goop), o-rings (coolant bypass and fuel injector kit), and oil.

www.zzperformance.com
www.intense-racing.com
www.rollingperformance.com
www.texasthunderbirds.com

All 4 of these would be a good choice for a coupler. Do NOT buy your gasket from them. They don't support your year.

Well the time has come to install my SC, I have everything cleaned and ready for gaskets. Does the SC and TB gaskets go on dry, (no gasket goo), and do I need to grease the 2 rubber yellow o-rings or do I just drop them in place on the manifold? I have also found that the "pulley key" has broken, can I find that half moon key at any hardware store?? Thanks again for all the help!

Dry for the TB and SC gaskets. Make sure you torque them in the proper sequence and to the proper value for a proper seal. O-rings (yellow) drop in dry.

Fuel injector o-rings can be prelubed lightly with motor oil in order to seat properly.

Best bet for the key is to take pieces or measurements and find a local machine shop or heavy equipment repair shop. They'll probably give you one.

Otherwise get one at www.mcmaster.com

I got my stuff from Rollingperformance. Very good to deal with..stuff comes quickly. If you ordered on Sunday, it probably shipped Monday and like Willwren said..2-3 days.

Be patient as you only ordered it Sunday.

just got the mail, IT'* HERE. So in the garage I go. May the "Wrenching Gods" have mercy on me!! I say that because I broke my only torque wrench, so I hope I get it firm enough, both nosedrive and intake. I should be fine if I finger tighten then wrench starting from the center and then star patern out?, right? lol
