The car is supercharged.

But I would still replace the LIM gaskets at some point in the near future.
so you are telling me the supercharger and LIM will require a port and polish job?

You won't gain much by doing a port and polish job on a L67.

But the piece of mind you gain by replacing those gaskets is priceless.

Day4

very uneventful. planned on painting the gas tank and it did not dawn on me until i arrived that the garage was 30 something degrees. unless i had some alaskan blend of paint it surley wasn't going to layout and adhear properly.

i decided to pull the harmonic balancer off. whoops, don't have the proper puller for this either. :( gotta go tool shopping this weekend.

lol @ pulley



some higher quality pics.



still shocked @ the condition of the floor pan.





3800 is going to need a full day of cleaning. how do the plastic guides the spark plug wires run through pop off?

there are 10 jackstands in the loft. i didn't want to lift the car that high... it has a 3 ton floor jack under both sides of front subframe [not in picture].

edit: actually they are visible in the one picture.
