What you see on the LIM in the last couple pics of the engine is what'* left on the top end other than the SC and TB.

Thermostat and EGR, other than torquing the LIM. A couple more short nights after work for the top end.

Yeah, I too believe the beer is beginning to be purposly placed. I will admit, you do have a very clean engine.

Your lifter guides look different.. maybe shoot a closer shot for me? Looks like your lifters stick up really high

I can't even see the lifters in this?

Let alone the guides. And I do believe yours are different.

Those are only oil guides, not lifter guides. That'* a big difference between your motor and a Series 1.

That'* an oil guide? Umm.. what keeps your lifters from turning? Is your block machined to accept hydraulic lifters?

Umm.. how is my engine not series 1?
