I wish I had of but it's so dang hard to take picture breaks when your hands are filthy. I actually thought about doing the Plenum as well, but I have only just a very slight moistness inside the throttle body and I figure that's normal PVC Valve blow-by so I didn't touch it.
Well good luck, hope the reassembly goes as planned like mine did.
Yep, goin well so far. i took some pics, but not many of the whole process. i just finished putting the water pump on last night at around 9:30pm.kinda hard to take good pics in the dark or low-light. now all i need to do is flush the coolant system (for numerous reasons), change oil (don't trust that i kept EVERY little bit of dust/dirt/coolant from getting into the pan - which sux since i just did an oil change 1k ago - ARGH!!!!!), possibly put an e-fan and DIY intake on, and.... i think that's it..... and i've got just over 2 months to get it done. Hope that's enough time.
