I just put on new upper and lower intake gaskets, valve cover gaskets and TB gasket, along with 19lb injectors.

Great job, I like the attention to detail, like the black on top around the letters. The marring note is the lone red wire snaking it's way to where ever.

The upper radiator hose has seen its better days. You should get vacuum cap/plug to replace the hose/bolt you have on the intake tube justto make it all look a little cleaner. But looks good anyway.

Very nice clean up! I would also reccomend gunk gel spray. You can get it at automotive stores but it gets all the grease off of the block and other parts. I use that stuff every 2 weeks usually and when theres a show I even get down in there with a tooth brush to get all the small spots clean from dirt and grease.

i usually use simple green and it works awsome. then i put armorall on everything close the hood and turn the engine on and let it idle for about 20 min. it makes it look like brand new.

Simple green is awesome! My yellow paint on the underside of the hood and the radiator cross member gets dried with black grime but the simple green takes it right off. A cleaner engine on the outside runs cooler and runs longer!

no they work fine. they do make it run on the richer side but no problems. these 2.9's arent mass air controlled they are controlled off of the MAP and the o2 sensor so they will work together and in turn the injector wont need to work as hard. works great just dont do it and the 1986 2.9 TB then the TPS wont calibrate corectly.

dont worry i have taken that intake off since and I have replaced it with the stock intake box and tube. so needless to say but the other intake tube is for sale for cheap. I will ship it, $27 shipped
