Here are the pics. Want to mention that no manual states you have to move the main wiring harness, but it is a required step. fairly easy to do.

A few more comments/ lessons learned. Research uncovered that most installers complain FelPro does not ship enough RTV with the set. I imagine they are not only trying to save money, but reduce the risk of an installer using to much and causing other problems (as I might of).

Victor Reinz sells a very good LIM gasket through RockAuto that does not require you to buy the other gaskets that FelPro sells and cuts the cost down over 50%. I also like the overtorque protection technology VR claims to have built in their gasket (claims can't be overtorqued within reason).

I think I may be doing this a third time, so I ordered in the VR set, hopefully I they will sit on a shelf.
