with a belly entirely too full of outrageous Easter festivus, I got home and dove straight back into continuing prep in anticipation of Sat's intended install session w/ Jake

casually told What's Her Face with an oh bytheway ummmm yeaaaaah... I'm gonna hafta have you park yer shinny black GL in the driveway alllllll week this week so I can use the full monty for my maniacism



which was retorted to w/ an um yeah vacuum my damn truck, yajerk so I started there first and THEN moved to get mah shiit together and sorted




on to ze questions for you generous experts:

is this weep signature between the jug / head considered 'normal' / within the range of 'acceptable'? It's on #1 & #4, and I've seen it from the underside of #2 as well:





feeling less so ubercool running my filter atop the intake instead of the insipidly ginormous monolith of an airbox (airzepplin?), with breather vented to a small filter to atm... fekkin bongresin EVERYWHERE

this is after unloading 2cans 'o Brake Clean via an old dish scrub brush - screw this shiit, getting me a catchcan fersure... this couldashoulda been avoided d'oh / que sera sera:



taking every advantage of the limited window of time / access, I'm thoroughly enjoying ridding such BS as the remnants of the airpump - buhbye / FU to the 3 knucklebusting 3" studs seen here which formerly mounted that 700lb piece of CRAP!



couldashoulda been avoided - just say no to vent to atm!

great opp to lube the throttle spring, also doing all the gaskets / O-rings back here in the Bermuda Triangle of Death:



another Q... how do I get the passenger chain to clear the rail so I can get it thru the box to get the box fully off? Looks like I have to remove the rail? If so, how to? Trust me I know, mah ignorance is painful:
