...started to do some other remidial fixes while I got it apart. I have converted the fuel rail into a "dual feed". Also would like to do a coolant reroute to fix the #4 piston from running hotter than the others. Any aluminum peripherals, I've been putting to the wire wheel and cleaning up, really got the intake manifold to look a lot better, but does the block ever look and feel nasty, not cleaning up well?! I'm gonna roll the car out and pressure spray the engine compartment, get all that blown' Mobil 1 outta' all the nooks and crannies LOL!

You should probably get your bores cleaned up and re-honed.
