I agreed with you completely until I saw this \/ mess. Then I felt like there was some room for aesthetics.

Why'd you swap to the other type LS coils? What's the difference?

I can't believe it was because you were just going for a cleaner look with FM's bracket.

(I've been trying to decide if I want to buy your coils and injectors...)

I am digging your VVT oil feed line that liberates all that space behind the head.

Those aren't the most POWERFUL LS coils. Lost interest. I like to have an extra 5 feet of wiring in my harnesses. That way, when I decide to mount my coils in the mouth of the bumper to get some airflow over the heat sinks, I won't have to rewire them.

I finally got the new coils actually wired in. I also installed the FM spark plug wires and some new ID1000 injectors. Tomorrow I will recover my wires for cam sensor, vvt, and crank sensor. Then install the intake manifold, radiator, and alternator belt. After that it is fill with coolant and oil then I should be back on the road.

18psi is more or less correct. Overall while I have no doubt the DW1000's would meet my fueling goals, I was not completely satisfied with them. For one the dead times were lacking. Secondly I believe because of that I could not get a good idle AFR. I have no IAC valve so my throttle body was cracked open a tiny bit. This caused me to idle at random values depending on all sort of variables, I would idle between 13.2:1-14.7:1. I am hoping the ID1000's are better at getting idle decent.

It is exposed only long enough for me to get the car up and running so I can watch for leaks. I have new cover gaskets and everything waiting to go on. Once I confirm that I did not botch up the front main seal install and the cam shaft seals I will put on the covers.
