A little update.. progress. I sandblasted my valve covers and repainted them blue to match the block.

Got the new push rods, lifters and heads on. Also the water pump. I am waiting to get my timing cover gasket put on still.. hopping between 2 projects at the moment haha

I also cant wait to get this running to take it to the car wash and simple green the engine bay.. its nasty!

Got my 3" BL installed. It went ok overall. A few bolts were buggers to get out..
Has anyone had any troubles with the steering shaft hitting the headers? I have a 2000 with a 4.0 and Pacesetters.. It connects but it rubs em. Sooo looking for some solutions. Any help?
