    Update:
    Looks like I had coolant on top of and underneath the gasket around cylinder 6 on the intake side. Oil was a present on 8/14 of the head bolts. All of them felt about the same for tightness. This is the first time Iíve ever done anything like this so if you see anything abnormal feel free to point it out.

    Looking at bringing the head in this week to check it. Iíll probably have to do the same with the block, the oil passages and cylinder walls have seen better days.

    Itís been a while. Here is everything as it sits, hoping to be all wrapped up in 2-3 weeks. I upgraded the speakers to BavSounds after my friends ZHP was totaled, canít wait to give those a try.

    New
    main bearings,
    rod bearings
    slightly bored
    new pistons
    decked the block
    ARP studs
    Resurfaced head
    Beisan vanos seals
    Beisan drilled oil pump disk
    Beisan Upper chain guide
    Upgraded vanos bolts
    New timing chain
    New tensioner
    New guides
    New oil pump chain
    All new gaskets, seals bolts etc

    I took apart the throttle bodies because they were squeaking. I completely disassembled them and had them blasted and coated but it turns out the bearings arenít available separately so Iím probably looking at buying another used set. At least they look good I guess
