Your car sounds great!! How is it running and do you feel the combo to be reliable? Also did you need to remove the engine to do the heads/cam work? How was it installing headers? When did u have it tuned and how was the cam install on the factory bearings? What was the hardest part of your project and how long did it take you? Sorry for the interrogation lol.

Hoping its pretty reliable.. i won't know that for a year I suppose.. but I would expect it to be reliable I couldn't see why not. I'm sure ill destroy My rear diff but thats me, not the engine setup.. then it'll be time for a 9.. I did remove the engine, but I wanted to clean My bay, and new oil pump and oil pan gasket and rear main... So i just figured yank it, it was more work but I painted the block and found a wire worn through, and got 15 years of gunk cleaned. Could have easily done heads n cam with it in the car, with rad/condensorremoved. once you get enough room to stand in the bay its not hard to work on. As for bearings, mine Were all in good shape, My car only has 59k so I didnt replace but IDE say that's personal preferance and milage and condition. . As for headers.. gotta have the engine in and rock engine one side at a time. Driver side in from top, pass in from bottom.. hope i amswereed everything.

Pcm for less tune.. its running great.. except I got a throttle issue I gotta look into., and of course I won't even get to test drive it for 2 more months when the snow melts.. it took me about 2.5 mo from start to finish. But took My time.. its winter.
