Simple didn't have the time. Had to warm up a bit a few times. Don't think I will have any time tomorrow. Going on a field trip with my son and his class to point beach nuclear plant. So I might get a little time after, but I doubt it. So I guess I finish on Wednesday.

Way to GO, Dan! I think you got an amazing amount done with the conditions and cold. I hope she gives you many miles of burnt rubber lines down the roads.

Really want to finish this up. I started about 4 weeks ago. The cam was 13 hours, another hour or two for the injectors, and another hour or two for the throttle body and air filter. so 17 to 20 hours there, plus tuning. So a good 20 hours. Now throw the transmission on that. Looks like it will be about 30 hours for that. So around 50 hours of work. I'm really itching to take it out again.
