I finished installing a compressor air filter on the PCV hose (no valve on the stock engine). It's not plumbed to the intake atm.

I chopped off the helmholtz chambers from the engine cover. Now I have more room, and l can see the engine. I used pieces of the original cover to close in the "short ram" intake. I now know the joys of JB Weld

Next, l will paint the valve cover. Painting the valve cover is for more than just looks. I'm getting used to quickly R&R parts on my daily driver. I'm not confident to degree the cams myself yet. I can get the heads ported for free, but I have to put it together myself, or pay someone else. I have to get it all done in a day...maybe two.
