    Took it out for the maiden voyage last night. First impression.. it sounds incredible.
    A bit nervous as the remaining oil burnt off but the oil leak is fixed. It kept stalling when i'd let off the gas and rpms dropped too quickly, but adding some fuel in the lower rpms below idle solved that. I might need to raise the front struts up slightly since it still rubs quite a bit with 235s. Still need to have the dump tube routed back into the downpipe. For now the screamer pipe is in place but it's a tight fit and does rattle a bit under certain conditions. Also, the rear part of my exhaust occasionally vibrates on the rear ipd sway bar so that willl need addressing at some point.
    Still running the Siemens 630s and will need to upgrade to 1000cc injectors. Beyond that, i think the limiting factor will be the cly sleeves. Since i've barely driven the car in the last few years, i'm not going to push things too hard. Honestly if the motor gave out anytime soon, I would have very little motivation to fix it. Although, even driving it for a short time yesterday did remind me how nice it is to drive.

    All back together.. Idles perfectly now that the broken spark plug is replaced.

    Did you have the manifold flange milled prior to ceramic coating? I only ask because it was used and I had to have a hair shaved off mine

    I decided to use a helicoil instead of just tapping the hole out to a larger size. Worked great.


    Put the cam cover back on. It looks a little thin in one spot in the pic, but I think it's just a reflection. I did put an extra little bit on the head on the back side.



    Now I just need to put the new cam seals in and finish putting things back together.
