Looks great... but why'd you have the upper intake on backwards?

I like the "aluminum" oil pan, and the black upper intake..

I see you followed 'my' suggestion (I suggested it on here to someone, I don't know if you read my posts or not) and left the exhaust manifolds on the pipes. HOw hard was it to squeeze the motor past the manifolds, especially removing it by hand?

I had the intake plenium on backwords cause i plan on mounting it taht way for a "ram air" induction, it might not help much if at all but i haven't seen it done yet.

I didn't read your post but i usually leave the manifolds connected to the pipes on all my rebuilds, just makes it easier. As far as doing it by hand, it wasn't hard at all to squeeze the motor out from between the manifolds, just getting it off the engine mounts was the hard part, then getting my arms rapped around it and picking up and setting it out of the car was a hole nother story..

Yeah, i did it all my self, picked it up out of the car carried the engine to my shed(with out the heads on it, I'm not that tough yet ;) ) Tore it apart, cleaned it, and reassembled it. I didn't send anything off to a machine shop, only thing that might get sent off is the radiator to get flushed that's it. I took the block to the local car wash and washed it really good spend 10 minutes washing it and getting it all cleaned out.

And if any of you need any help or advice I'd be more than happy to help you where i can!


Thanks!
Clayton

As for leaving the manifolds...

On the 3.3, the manifolds overlap the edges of the heads by a little bit. So, I didn't know how hard it was to shove the manifoldes to the sides at the same time, hard enough, to lift the motor out. I'll be changing my 3.3 sometime soon, so curious for that reason.
