So I got the heads back and tq'd on I did some cleaning up on the intake mani and the heads had some work done. I think I could have done better than this shop did as the runners have waves and what not Oh well thats what makes me a DIY, the work i put on the I/M was my first attempt at porting I think I did ok..some other stuff I did was cleaned out the TB and I/M. Cleaned off the corrosion on the FI's and painted them to keep from corroding once again. I put in the roller lifters and yokes and yoke holder..Couldn't find TQ speccs so just placed them at 144 in-lb. I have to get my rocker set back from the machine shop tomorrow since they forgot to put them back on my heads "shakes head"

I/M

My guesstimation for just the engine is around $1,058 but I still need oil, coolant, R134A and little things maybe~ but should come in around $1,100 with that list of materials. But it should be running like a champ. ~~Possibly $1,230 with starter and alternator

Oh wait my alternator is no good it fails the regulator test. I found one new for $93 so might pic it up or try and find a replacement part for it (if possible). My stater looked like hell it did work the few times I started it but it took a dump when I had it tested, go figure it looked like it was dead so now it is lol Thanks for chiming in. I picked up my rockers going to get a little more cleaner to clean these up a bit more. then I should hopefully finish this master piece> but that's not the engine but I will have a parts list of what I replaced on it once i get all my receipts together. Thanks again guys!

If you were here I could possibly do it

so I got the rocker assembly's, intake manifold, valve covers and exhaust manifolds installed tonight about 7 hours non stop, my feet are frozen cause its pretty chilly out in my garage. To finish just the engine i need to install the alt but i need to fix or buy new. The injectors and the rails and she is ready to be transplanted.
