Very nice Justin, looks great.

And on a side note, the coil packs are mounted like that because he did the Delco swap and found his own way to mount it without the metal plate from a L27.

For those who asked, I had the stock airbox on when I drove the car. However I removed it because I now have the cash for a CAI. I did NOT drive the car without an airfilter.. I am not retarded. The MAF Screen is on there, for when I have the move the car, that I don't suck a leaf up or something.

Like Capetan said, I did the Delco swap, and used the stock Magnavox mounting holes and bolted the ICM up to that. It is solid as can be, but it is also at an angle. Nothing wrong with it. eventually I will just drill the mounting holes in the bracket.. but for now, it stays.

Engine degreaser doesn't cut it on my engine. On everything I didn't clean during the Top End Rebuild, it has a 1/4" thick layer of grease and oil. That'* just on the block/tranny though. Everything else will come out with a little Simple Green and a paper towel.

I would have waited until the engine was all clean to get pics, but it seemed everyone wanted pics, so that'* what you got.

Bill: I know the Accel coils have a bad rep, but I paid $30 for the three. Couldn't pass that deal up . And what stuff on the valve covers? They are one of the few items which are clean.

Thanks for all the great comments guys . At least nobody said "Damn ***** LN3, get an L67."

No matter what anyone says..grease...no grease..angle or no angle.

Great job taking something torn down so far and getting it back together.

Hell yeah jaswasup, saved my ***! It'* those little things that really matter. Thanks again, dude!

Bill: Thanks man.. it was fun. All totally worth it. Well, it will be as soon as I really ride the throttle and ******* light up the tires.

Straitor: Lurking in the midst of all of this.. finally showing your face. Good to see you around.
