Last 2 or 3 days of pics (at least a few of them).

Oil filter is installed and pre-filled. Both exhaust manifolds are on the car. Accessory bracket is bolted back to the rear head, PS pump is reinstalled.

Working on a couple new strut bars (other cosmetics also), 4 new gauges, engine hoist brackets, ICM bracket and extra Zilla idler bracket, and misc other little things. Will be working over the LIM and SC this weekend.

I got boxes coming out my ears. Sorted by build date.

You know what sucks? The SLE isn't here to refer to for my harness routing, fuel lines, etc. What goes under/over what. I'm referring back to my own pics.

Downpipe flange bolt kit came from a local parts store. Hanging on the shelf. Crossover pipe bolts from the dealer the last time I had it apart.

Ah yes...a little P&P before your R&R. Or is it R&R&P&P at the same time?

I have to open my LIM ports to match my head porting, then put on the bypass fittings on both ends. When that is ready, the valvetrain and valve covers will go back in/on. Then I'll move onto the SC. It'* going through a more major transformation.
