    I'm outside for work and everything else, kinda feels like a heat wave after your body adjusts to winter. It's almost 40 today and I got a few things put back together

    and I did my taxes with turbo-tax and didn't realize I chose to get my state refund back in amazon cards lol... So I figured i might as well spend it immediately

    I agree with this completely. It actually doesn't hurt that bad to grip your ratchet without gloves lol

    Just gotta wait on the bbk tb/plenum to arrive and it'll be just about buttoned up. I'm nervous about it, but confident it's all good at the same time (only confident because of the great help and advice I received here)

    Lol it probably will be this week! I had a long work day today, so hopefully I'll have a package delivered to me tomorrow and finish it all up. I will even post a crappy cell phone video if it runs right

    Edit: ohio roads have more salt on them than ever, so I can't get it running immediately because I'll be too tempted to drive it. I'd hate to have a rusty car and truck lol

    Thanks for the motivation lwarrior1016 and 96blak54. Not running yet but injector o rings changed and fuel rail re-installed, belt reinstalled and I might get the spark plug wires/coil packs in tonight

    Lol I know! The only thing left to do is put on the coil pack Brackets and change the oil/ fill the radiator. I just got home from work and it's 8 outside. I might get to it tho. I also broke a vaccum line, brittle plastic and frigid temps don't mix! I'll update soon, and if Saturday counts as this week I still should have it all fired up

    I need to thank everyone for sharing their knowledge and time. Without you guys it would have been a lot easier to give up on it! But I have it running, sounds a lot more aggressive than the NPI stuff did. The bbk tb/plenum kinda whistles too, I like it. It's running smooth considering I broke several of the plastic hard vacuum lines (gonna make a junkyard run soon unless I can find some for sale). It's smoking a little under the driver side valve cover, but there's no oil spewing out that I can see or feel. Gonna clean it up some more and hope that solves it. I let it run for a while and then gave it some gas. Here's a short vid in case anyone wanted to see! [MENTION=20210]lwarrior1016[/MENTION] I hope this is still within my deadline lol
