Very good job, gentlemen I am amazed that there were no end gaskets on the lower I can't imagine how the car did as well as it has missing those pieces.

Hey?...Where are the pics of the clean engine bays? I was told that engine bay cleaning occured

Ummm no pics of the clean engine bays. I left a few minutes after we got done washing the cars and engine bays. I had to pick up my son at 5pm and I left at 2 which gave me anough time to deal with traffic and snags on the way.

Excellent work on the porting, particularly in the short time available.

I'd also like to point out how nice the LIM gaskets look. Anyone notice them in comparison to the S2 cars that use DEX?

And also note that someone had been in that engine before... The gaskets that they removed were felpro gaskets.... As to why there were no end seals leaves me amazed...

Very true Will. I did LIM gaskets on a 97 Malibu with the 3100 with Dexcool, those poor gaskets were in absolute terrible shape. I'm glad I got my good old standard green coolant.

My OEM gaskets came out of the Zilla'* LIM at 110k miles looking almost good enough to use again.

For the record, Tony has the receipts showing that LIM has been off twice previously to us going in this weekend. IIFC the last swapping of the LIM gaskets was not many miles ago.

Seeing that the end gaskets weren't put in place.. we understand why.

Same here. My LIM gaskets were replaced by a dealer a few years ago, and they did not do a very good job on them. When I pulled my LIM, the end gaskets were put on wrong (they have the half circle on them, they did it *** backwards), and the LIM gaskets looked like they were on there 200+k miles. It actually looks like they replaced the end gaskets and said screw the LIM'*.

1000th POST!!! :P
