The engine is in. Spent some time last night getting everything in place and for the most part buttoned up.
I pulled the trigger on a small project I had been considering for awhile and that is to switch my vacuum system over to mostly hard lines. A couple bills later and I had myself the essentials from Vibrant Performance. The lines are made up of two compounds one is a high heat and the other is standard.

This is the difference. The bottom fitting is what I had on my turbo housing, above is what I'll be installing.
The engine dropped in pretty flawlessly. I mounted up the dust shield for the trans and the motor went in without fuss.
Dropped in the turbo, mounted the DP and snugged it down. Still need to go through and tighten everything up but shes about ready to fire.
