That's the great thing about car buddies. I have some tools but my neighbor has a shit ton and a lift, and told me if I ever need any tools or help to give him a shout. He has a sick ass built TT 02 SS with 789rwhp and 713lb/ft. I'm waiting for my ride in it lol.

Got the block sealed yesterday. I had 2 sets of fel-pro intake gaskets, matched them up and used the larger set. Slapped the GT-40 lower on. Also go the harmonic balancer on.





Also got my new Valeo clutch today.

Im using stock convertible motor mounts. Supposedly the engine sits a tad bit lower with these and are a bit stronger than older hatch/notch mounts i hear, but i dont know for myself. I was taking every step to try to get away with my stock hood.

Degreased and pressure washed the bellhousing today. Also removed the rubber bushings from my new trans crossmember to prepare for paint.

I got my dust cover in the mail today. Will have to scrub it clean, I let it go with the motor when i sold it forgetting the one on the 351w was for an AOD trans.

Went to NAPA yesterday to pick up my Fel-Pro rear main seal for the 351w, bought the most expensive one i could. Hope it stays leak free for a long time. Also found out Valvoline synthetic MERC ATF was on sale! From $6.97 a bottle down to $4.49! So i picked up 3 quarts.
