Welcome to the madhouse, Yeti. Did you get a replacement upper intake manifold too? And a coolant elbow?

You'll probably need to replace fouled plugs, possibly the O2 sensor, and you should have your oil drained right now.

Let us know how it goes. If you have any questions, the 92-99 section will get the the best answers in the shortest time possible.

That about sums it up. You should be good if you read the Techinfo. You'll want to change your oil again after about 50-100 miles (you do the metric conversion). So put the cheap stuff in for now.

Hi YeTI and welcome to BC!
There are quite a few Canadian members on here, eh?
Where are you from?

Please make sure you update your signature with year and trim level of your car, so the experts know what you're working on should you have a question.

Cheers,
Adam
