Thanks a lot! I'm glad you guys like it. It was definitely a lot of work, but I think it'* paying off with how smoothly the car runs now. I just hit 180,000 miles yesterday, and there'* a very unexciting video that I'm about to add a lot of spunk to and upload to something.

Also, I have some daytime pictures of what I think is the finished engine bay:

Looks nice. Why use a Neon ignition coil though?

The original ignition setup is mostly there except for the two coil plugs that sat right above the plugs. Normally, you'd want to go away from plug wires and to a coil-over-plug setup if you can, but the Alero'* ignition was just shoddy enough for me to want to change it. I hope someone can come up with a better aftermarket setup, but nothing just yet. Allegedly, quite a few 2.4L Twin Cam guys go this route to avoid misfires and other ignition problems.
