    I can give you some pics but I got my driver side header out without sroping the midpipe or lifting the motor or droping the k so I deffintly like the clearence so in about an hour I will go and take the passenger side off. Then loosen the motor mounts take the intake off then sit and wonder if i should pull the transe out with it or drop it!!

    Alright I am letting the cat out of the bag here is what i am doing.

    I am stroking it out to a 5.1 L at 302.3 cubic inch
    I am adding a windage tray
    I am adding arp main studs,head studs, cam bolts, balancer bolt, and rod bolts
    I am having the heads ported and polished, 3 angle valve job and have the heads and cams checked.
    Then I will either add a typhoon intake or a kb blower!!

    I lack two bolts on the passenger header wanna guess which two. Thats right the rear upper two. I hate those two bolts after those are off then the header will come out. then i can move on!!
