Late yesterday, I timed the cams, but that's all I did since the weather is phenomenal here. This morning, I installed all the rockers and set the valve lash. You can't beat setting the lash on an engine stand. Once that was done, things start going together pretty fast. The intake, TB, injectors are all one assembly then I'll install the engine tin. The IC is installed after the motor is installed.

After work tomorrow, the motor will be ready to join to the tranny. Here is a shot of my Marco Manzie equal length headers. To install the headers, turbo and muffler takes 20 minutes, start to finish. The exhaust is the last step in the process because I don't want all that weight hanging off two bolts on an engine stand while I work on other stuff.

Once the motor and tranny are joined it's about 3 hours until I can turn the key.
