It's my car soon!
Picked up the harness(s) I need today, got a few more parts to find, and a few hundred pages of schematics to study, but it should be in and running by Feb/03 -Yama

Nice! Let me know if you are selling the parts off your old engine. I'm interested in the intake and cams at least if you do.

I refuse to answer that question on the basis that the answer might incriminate me.

The real question is...how the heck are you gonna get all that rust off the rotors???

Hopefully, I'll get to see this install in progress when I go home to MI in the future.

Good luck.

How'd it go John? Did you have to cut the lugs on the engine stand? Were the casters a pain?
