Wish I didn't have to work the next 4 days, so it'* going to just sit there. That'* why I covered it up. It'* going to tease me every day.

Just mounted the engine in the car. Still need to hook it all up, ran out of time for now. Need to go pick up some new autolite 103 plugs and I'm going to grab a 160* thermostat. Just need to do a bracket, plug in all the electrical, and the fuel. Then it should be just about good to go. Oh ya, and the headers and throttle body. Hmm, and starter, battery, coolant, washer bottle, EVAP canister, PCM. Dang, I have a ways to go yet. Oh well, I'm happy. Pictures will be posted later on when I have time.

Awesome project. Wish I had a garage to build a sweet new engine for my ride. I hope you'll do a write up on the oil pressure mod. It is a reliabilty mod, I would guess. A little higher oil pressure keeps things lubed up better? what about gaskets? like is it hard on gaskets and seals?

I wanted some of those last year, and totally forgot. I'm sure I'll take a dozen.

I did a write up of sorts on it, but never put it in tech info. Perhaps I'll do that when I have time. No real need for it on a stock or nearly stock engine. But when heavily modded, it'* a good idea.

Pictures are uploading now.

And fairly clean now too. Just not enough time in a day. So much to do today, not sure how much time I will have in the shop.

Got a few PITA things to do. Like connect the diff to engine mount, change the oil pressure sender, looks like 2000 is a different plug. Wish I had noticed that when the engine was outside the car. Mount the power steering pump, put the rear header back on. Hmm, plug in the knock sensors, put the starter back on, and connect the torque converter to the flex plate. Then fill the fluids connect the PCM and battery. And finally, start it.

It'* a bit late for this helpful trick, I found it easier for me to leave the SC off, put a towel on the LIM and kneel on it while reconnecting the rear header. Although IIRC you pulled it completely out, I'd typically leave mine in because it was welded.

The 00+ sensor is different. (they fail more frequently..lol) Oh..did you leave the 00+ power steering spacer bracket on? I found that bracket super for helping to line up the ps pump in order to bolt it back up. It cradles the pump into the perfect position.

Soon you'll have it purring again and ... this is gonna be you

I took that bracket off. I may have to crawl under there and put it back I guess. Only other difference I found was the motor mount. I had to remove a plug to put a stud in it'* place. Glad I noticed that before putting in.

My wife keeps adding things to my list. Not even sure if I'm going to get much done today. My projects mean nothing.
