Kinda dragged my feet on updates since, well, I dragged my feet with the swap over the last week lol

I started it up for the first time saturday night, started and ran with no drama. Unfortunately my 02 water pump I swapped my leaky stock one for turned out to be even leakier so I'll have to fix that sometime this week (I have one ordered) and my lh valve cover seems to have a hairline crack towards the back and is dripping oil on the manifold flange and making a smokey mess. On the theme of smokey messes and exhaust manifolds, 500* clearcoat? Not the best choice it turns out

Anyway, lots of pictures since the last update:


02-04 valve covers VS. 91-01

Gasket/grommet differences

Baffle differences

I had to enlarge the hole for the early style PCV valve and grommet (the new style is a twist-lock O ring setup)

Power steering line

Trans cooler install


More to come once the camera batteries are charged
