Thanks everyone.. I truly appreciate it.

WELL TODAY IS THE DAY all of my Engine goodies go on.

Somewhat apart now



All of the topside nuts and bolts are either soaking or broke loose already,,
Got some AWESOME Nutbuster lube.. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED





And a Preliminary Pic of whats its going to look like when its back together.. . LOVING IT <3



Thanks for looking.. now to go bust the stuff on the bottom loose..
Downpipe/Turbo. etc..

Have a great day people.

Bill
