          Motor will go back in tomorrow

          Final fit up for intake manifold. O ring manifold is a bit tricky so laid the motor over, fitted guide studs and fitted o rings with manifold flat

          It’s amazing how many things have to be changed just by raising the head 1 inch in the bay (some I had to change anyway due to upgrades)
          dump pipe
          screamer pipe
          turbo drain
          hotside pipe
          top radiator hose
          dipstick mount
          oil pressure wiring
          cold side pipe
          fuel supply and return
          catch can hoses

          Made a new alternator mount as I’ve changed to an Ls style 165amp alternator from my very good friends at Motion Raceworks

                  you can always hear them when they break and they stop the engine immediately so you can't do any more damage.

                          Duel -8 feed and single -10 fuel lines done. Redid the breather hoses with 30 degree fittings where they meet the bulkhead connector. I’ll let my braided pierced fingers heal tomorrow and then I have to pull the box back out. I checked the bolt pattern on the new sfi flexplate but didn’t make sure the bolts fitted through the holes :/

                              Took the hot and cold side piping to get welded yesterday. Unfortunately, doing it this way, means getting one bend added at a time as fit up with plasmaclamps is tight. Taking it back for the final welds tomorrow. Really happy with the fitup
