Well made some progress this weekend. Got some sensors installed on the block, got the second freeze plug installed, have the rear main seal on. I also worked on the SVT exhaust Manifold and cut off the tabs for the heat shield and ground them down.

The big hole is from removing this pipe...

Trust an exhaust shop to weld in a pipe for an EGR and have it stick in the exhaust runner 1" and be a huge obstruction. I am going to get a piece of 1/8" stainless steel stock bar and heat it up cherry red and bend it to a nice little patch. Then take it to a weld shop who knows what there doing put a patch on and then put on a EGR bung taken from a stock manifold. Like the picture I found below...
