I have not done this install, but I can tell you a few things that may or may not help....

The PCV line does run from beneath/behind the coil pack. Follow the line from the PCV that is located at the header. The line goes back under the coil pack and plugs into a metal line. Follow that metal line straight back and it will have a rubber hose attached to it...its underneath and behind the coil pack. This is usually where you would run a catch can inline before returning the oily vapor back to the intake.

Don't cut the cable, lol! I know you were probably joking, but unless you want a CEL I wouldn't do it. zip tie it to something and get it outta the way.

The Fuel Pressure sensor, IIRC, you have to remove the fuel supply line using a special plastic tool, then disconnect the electrical plug and vac line....then unscrew it from the rail.

Last, but not least, good luck. I know that install is a bit of a beast. In that respect I am glad I gotta jrsc...but once I get stomped by a powerworks, I will be sad. :)

If your doing a SVT the temp sensor is in the thurmostat housing not the head

A EGT gauge is a total waste of time , send it back for a J&S or a AF Gauge or something that will do you some good
