Default Engine Pics

My mom is in Chicago, so I have the shitty camera. I got two crappy pics, but they are pics none-the-less. Don't mind some of the dirt and whatnot.. I haven't cleaned up some of the 'side' items. I also have the airbox pulled, because I just got the cash for a CAI..

Also, my sig pic is what the engine looked like after I was done disassembling. It was a little cleaner and the rods/lifters were stored, but that'* what it looked like. Not too bad for a 15-year-old, huh?

Keep an eye on that ignition. The Accel coils have a bad reputation here. Post some more pics when she'* cleaned up. You may have to let your degreaser sit for awhile to break up the stuff on the valve covers.

Takes me back to about 10 months ago when I decided my STE wasn't quick enough...I have a few very similar pics. Looks good. I'll be doing the same to the Lumina in the near future as well...

So I'm guessing he just isn't putting an airbox on until he gets the CAI?

And the coil packs are defiantely at an angle...I'm pretty sure they aren't supposed to be like that.
