I've been busy.....update time

I finally finished installing my Timing Belt, tensioner, idler, Serpentine belt, s-belt idler, water pump and gasket, radiator hoses, thermostat housing, 180 degree therm, and a plethora of other things.

Thanks to this site I was able to pull it all off flawlessly without ever using the Haynes Manual!! Rep was given where due.

UPDATE: I installed ES front sway bushings (BEEOTCH!) and Moog endlinks, which I painted the stems red for that added HP lol

A few tools and a cool shot I thought







The header wrapped and sealed up before install:


SVT Flex wrapped & sealed:


Jay Racing ORP wrapped & sealed:


You can see where I tried to paint the dogbone mount black before installing the ES inserts. I highly advise against doing that as you can see how dinged up mine got in the install prcoess.


Jay Racing EGR Block Off - I decided to block it off here for now until I get a 2000 IM:



SVT Header wrapped & sealed:


Euro Triangles Installed - Compliments of FocusFest2008:
dirty car....



Mid West Crew represent:

Tee-shirts & Design compliments of BLRich1

(Darth Vader Helmet, and I dremeled out his eyes and installed a red LED so they glow red....lol


Deleted rear wiper and plugged it:


Shift knob used to be chrome with perforated leather, I brushed the chrome and reskinned the shiftknob with a cloth material:



The latest rear seat delete although it's changed since this picture:


Few shots at the land:

do you just throw the egr block on there and thats it or do you have to do a little programing to you car to tell it not to read any thing from there? sorry if dumb question just have no clue about that stuff and want to get a header as well. car looks clean as hell by the way we will have to meet up some time so i can see it in person
