You do know there might be dirt or residue inside the exhaust pipes right?

Used Lower intake manifold arrived tonight, i soaked it, cleaned it, pressure washed the hell out of it, did basically the same ammount of cleaning to it i did to the oringal one.
I also got it ported with my new bit tonight, worked out wonderfully, not a problem, these ports are nice, uniform and clean.
It will run very soon.

But you see its my topic, and if i post an off topic thing in here, get mad at myself, PM myself, then go in and delete my own post.

Thanks for the comments, i find i pay FAR closer attention to detail on this car versus others I have owned lol.
I bought some SC oil today and have to buy gasket maker for the four corners on my LIM gaskets, basically attaches the rubber runner seal to the actual LIM gasket to head.
And Red Loctite i will be using.
Boys she coming along, I am aiming for a late night tommorw and crusing the streats of Red Deer Saturday.
Caling for like 25 degrees farenhite, but, thats fine, clear outside.
