Still have to clean up the wiring, but I got some BIG *** ISSPRO oil pressure, Water temp, and ammeter gauges and put them front and center. I want to know immediately whats going on with any of that.

Installed the second Snow water meth kit, painted the FICM, and anything that was BLUE, is now black.

Also added a few sponsor stickers, and removed one that I COUGH trusted COUGH no one would care about anymore.

Don't have the valve covers on yet because I don't have the injectors in yet. But I think it looks better in paint.

Its basically done, all rewired, and waiting for the injectors and turbo to go back on. Once they get here, they go on, and get back in action. I have to put the radiator back in, but I couldn't do that until I got the dampner back on, and it needs new bolts anytime you take them off. Oh yeah, one small thing. The damned starter. I forgot to put it on before I installed the motor. No biggie right, WRONG. You have to lift one side of the motor up to get it in between the frame rail. FML.

Man, that sucks about the starter. What's the deal with having to replace bolts every time you take them out?
