Thanks, I have been more of a reader than a writer!


I am using the stock fan shroud, but I cut part of it away to fit the cold air intake. And just have the electric fan attached to the rad. I can take another pic of that if you want, just let me know.


Where are you from?
You will need a Map sensor as well. And knock sensors are not used at all.
if you use the msd 60143 or 6014 you dont need a map sensor as its built in

Don't touch it. If it runs and hits on all 8 then don't mess with it. If it needs to be bored, then get another. They are too cheap and available to spend a pile of money on one. I understand wanting to rebuild it, but it's just not needed. It is worth checking the valve seal and valve stem protrusion.

What are your goals and budget?
