Default finally got my valve covers and catch can installed.

I waited until the cam was installed to finish the valve covers and re-plumb the catch can. I added MSD ignition wires while I was at it. A good friend, Mike (Likwid) made a catch can mounting bracket for me that uses one of the fuse box bolts. Really clean.

Wow Ed,

That looks stunning! I guess I missed the part where you got the new cam, but the engine bay looks great. Can't wait to see more pics as the springtime rolls around and the carshows start up!

Thanks for sharing, G8V8.

Imports...making a 10 second pass is like coming out of the closet. You might surprise a lot of people, but in the end your still gay.

Can't forget the "LOL" or people will think you're an a**hole

Thanks guys. I guess I didn't post much about the cam but i got the VMS stage 1.5 no-convertor cam and head package. While the motor was apart we also added a new timing chain and Comp Cam trunion kit in addition to all the parts that come with the kit.
