I think they're around 50-60 bucks. BTW those lights look awesome! How old are those gaskets anyway?

As long as you are this far, I'd swap out the LIM gaskets with the aluminum frame ones.

You should clean it up a little better than that.
Then again, you really can't see that much of it under the gleaming jewel of Gen V. :P

You should tap in a couple of ports for future injection/gauge points.

I'd clean it up. Black IMO won't look good.

If you want to cam... we are waiting until after the transmission is done and funding has recovered.

But then, you need cam, timing gears, lifters, pushrods, springs and retainers. Let'* not forget that pcm tuning or DHP to tweak it yourself.
