    Oh and found the oil pressure sensor to not even be hand tight so I know this is where some of my oil leak was coming from.

    Looks good. How many miles you got on that engine?
    Make sure you seal that intake up real good. On my lt1, after I seal the intake down, I took some sealant along the back section of the intake where it meats the block and smeared it along the their just to be sure.

    have you got a camera , other than your camera phone? i can't see to much , due to the pic quality. almost looks alike a set of hand ported heads, are they? also do you have much build up in the intake? last but not least make sure you put a good bead of rtv on the block where the intake seals . make sure you llet it cure for 10 to 15 mins to build a good film on itself , before you apply the intake itself.

    i let the rtv set for 20 minutes then installed the intake. Found out my torque wrench was broke so i just tightened it down good and will check it when i get a new one. The heads are lloyd elliot when he first started doing em back in 2000. The motor has 98k miles. I put a nice bead about half the total width of the mating surface and went onto the side gaskets about 1/4 to 3/8". I also used the spray gasket on the side gaskets. I put a little more rtv on the back than the front and made sure to set the intake striaght down. I had some long phillips heads in the front 2 bolt holes but the intake would not go down with them in the way so i had to raise the front up a little bit and pull those out. I was tyring to use them as alignment pins. Anyway gotta go helpa friend and stop by auto zone to get some vacume elbows since i had 4 that were just nasty and the pcv elbow had a big hole in it. I also found the back pass bolt loose when i took the intake apart.

    Question...On the injectors were they go into the intake there is an orangish looking thing just above the rubber o-ring. 6 of my injectors have this and 2 don't? I also lost 2 fuel rail clips but have been told i don't need em.

    Will be home later tonight...Thanks for the comments. Sorry my phone is all i have for a camer and i forgot to set the res. up to 1.3 I forgot. I use the camera for work and take pictures of homes with it at 640x480 and it works great...ANyway
