Don and myself discussed the fuel system after seeing the exhaust valves and how they look. You're running lean across the board. Dangerously lean on one cylinder. So much so that I don't feel comfortable putting your current injectors on the new motor. So, your injectors are going to be swapped for a clean set of L36 injectors. You will also be getting a new fuel filter (the one under the car looks to be all original), and I will be shopping around on ebay for a new O2 sensor.

I'll be sure to put a Bosch unit in

The front-bank head is on now, so for all intents and purposes, the long block is complete

That'* as far as it'* gonna get for a few days. Normal work hours today, I go home for about 5 hours, then pull a midshift (10 hours) and possibly my normal workday tomorrow, so a possible double-shift. For me, that'* a 20-hour day.

Starting at 6 am this morning, life officially sucks for me for a few days.
