Not much of an update but i been working on installing little things like oil pressure sender for my oil gauge and cleaning up and moving around some or the wiring in the harnesses to make it look a little cleaner in there. Not worried about wire tucking anything at this point.

On a side note these are some plugs from about 7 years ago or so from when i was running NOS. It was a 75 wet shot without a tune. Happened at the track and ran fine on the way home then started to misfire about two days later. All of this was on the same stock motor that i boosted for 6 years before it finally blew up.

You're telling me you never bothered to check your plugs?

I bought mine from HERE if i was to do it over i would have ordered the 50mm ones instead of the 45mm because the flange on the TopSpeed mani is so thick. but the ones i got do have full thread engagement but just barely. On a thinner manifold flange or a stock flange these (45mm) would work just fine.

Yeah, I like it too. Looks good, you can see the fancy pullies, but it keeps the gears from throwing crap on the hood!
