Well im getting a little closer to the day I put my engine in, all I have to do now is paint my engine bay, get the upgraded CT, and replace all the hoses (and hopefully get my aluminum IC pipes made)

here are some prgress pics:

















thts the engine so far, I have quite a bit of work to do, but when Im done, and everything is runing the way I want then ill start the beautification process, and start sanding off all the paint to make her a black beauty.

Hopefully Ill get that far by January, I really have to get going on the supra since i got in a fender bender w/ my jeep.....

Always nice to see an engine all cleaned up! :bigthumb: Is it just the cameras flash, or are the valve covers painted a red to orange chrome illusion type thing?

lol, its just red, its the flash in combo w/ those lights we use that gave it that hella expensive paint job look lol, but it looks good IMO

**edit** those white papers you see on the first shot are the SOGI instructions on how to take out the engine, they came in handy!
