But enough writing, here are some pictures.

loooks good're going to need a gasket and seal set for the block rebuild though...dont know if u have it or not...just a heads up....
Got them all :)

Jeff how well does the hydra work for the auto tune? is it pretty slick shit?
Phil has a map set up for 520cc injectors and I have 600cc. So I am hopeing that everything will go by pretty smoothly... I will only be at 8psi untill I get it tuned, then 15 will be on its way... :)

i like the autotune a lot....however its just a tool...and does not replace actual tuning....

what you want to do is turn the auto tune a few pulls..and then take a look at the logs and make sure it's actualy auto tuning....then smooth out the map and you're good to go....

its not hard and doesn't take long to get the hang of it....

timing is a different story though....
