Default I'm getting close to having my car running again

I blew the original LS1 in my 98 Z28 on October 21, 2006
I got stuck with no transportation or job for almost 6 months, then got one and got the money I needed, and I am gathering my parts.
I bought from a member on here an 02 Short-block, Comp 228/230 cam, and Comp 850 lifters, then started working on other parts, found a set of 02 heads off another member here with Comp springs, got a H-pipe true dual setup off another member on here, got a set of Pacesetter LTs, bought some 1.7 rockers, got a pair of (orange lol) 99-02 valve covers off Ebay, and won an auction on a set of 03 coil pack brackets yesterday. Now I have to put all this together, and after all this time I will finally have my car running again. I'm going to be working on it next weekend (couldn't do it today because my garage smells like a skunk died and then something crawled up the dead skunk's *** and died, the freezer got left open) Pics:

lol something like that 396...
I'm trying to get a bunch of people over this Saturday to finally get the old motor out. It shouldn't be too bad since I already have everything disconnected, just need to drop the motor and lift the body over it. Then I'll start putting together my new motor and I'll keep updates on here.
