Yeah, I'd be looking at $600-1000 to have a shop build it. Plus another $500 to have Terry Haynes do my tranny. Blah.

I have 3 toqrue wrenches, Craftsman ones. I'd invest in a digital one if I were going to build the engine myself. I am pretty sure that I could do it without a problem.

Fernando pointed out some problems.
1) The MAF is too close to the throttle body - I can shift the pipe around to add another 1-2" of distance.

2) The BOV should be as far away from the MAF for best readings. I'd need to have it moved at some point to the lower pipe by the charge pipe by the intercooler.

3) The pipe with the big curves by the MAF and shit it too curvy. Was told it would need to be remade at some point without all the curves. Blah again.

I can get it running no problem the way it is, it's just not optimal.

Sucks cuz I just had all the pipes powdercoated :-\
