    Just installed the stenciled Turbo Rocket Fluid filter. The green nut for the bracket is original paint.

    All that fuss and you hardly see the stencil job! It is the cool little things that make this car unique though!
    Looks immaculate under that hood from what we see! Can we see more photos of your engine bay?

    Wow, you have done a gorgeous job on it Greg. Did you rebuild your engine or send it out? I am still waiting for the border to open up, my engine is at D&D Aluminum V8 in Michigan.

    I do all my own work except machine work. I am way beyond OCD.

    Pic 1 A machinist will want to deck the block. I told mine no. These numbers are too important to have them machined off. My block was good and the composite head gaskets seal just fine even with imperfections. Also, decking a block will raise the compression, and you don’t want that.
    The water pump is NOS, the oil pressure sensor is NOS, the water temp sensor is NOS, the heater pipe is NOS (thanks Eric) and the water neck is NOS.
    All the bolts are original and have been cleaned and made black oxide as original.

    Pic 2 is the rebuilt oil pump. You should install a new gears and spring kit, and a steel trust plate kit.
