    Stripped down to the longblock! On the top half of the engine at least.

    After everything going pretty smoothly for the first few days of work, I finally hit my first big snag. All the bolts on
    my downpipe-to-midpipe connection and header-to-uppipe connections are rusted to shit. The uppipe bolts *might* still
    come out but the midpipe nuts and bolts are literally crumbling. I'm going to have to get out the saws-all and cut-off wheel.

    Times like this make me wish the car was on a frame lift and not just on ramps in my garage. Hello, sparks and shrapnel in the face!

    Hmmm....do I need a new oil pump for this build or should I be okay with swapping over the pump on my current engine to the new block?

    If your going with new engine, why take risk of using a used critical part. Remember oil is the life blood of your engine. That being said I would replace it and save yourself from a headache later.

    That's what I was thinking. But I also wondered why the whole package of parts I bought for this build didn't include or even suggest an oil pump. Made me wonder if they are commonly reused. I think I will be putting one on order when I call about the fuel system components I still need.

    It's worth noting, I only have 71,000 miles on the car. No spring chicken, but then again, not a +200,000 mile organ donor either.

    Dont forget to wrap that coolant pipe with some insulation! Otherwise its just radiating heat into your intake manifold, and nobody likes that!

    Good idea. Not sure just yet what I'll use. Maybe DEI Titanium (the gold foil tape stuff). I definitely want to clean up, repaint/touch up a few things in there and wrap or re-wrap everything that needs it. It's not filthy, but it's seen better days.
