Seriously though, the great detail and vast amount of pictures clearly make this a great writeup. When you finish, a mod needs to put this in the "Ultimate How-To" Sticky.
LOL! I just saw that avatar while reading through. Haha! Thanks for the compliment!

However...I'm tired. Got through Section 5 AND replaced my horn (in a rather hillbilly way) today! I'll finish 6,7,8, and 9 tomorrow. I gotta get a Youtube account so I can upload these vids too lol!

EDIT:
Ok...1 more section. There's 6.

Awesome write up. I will definitely be using this when I do my pacesetters very soon (just got them today along with a TSP catted Y).

WHEW! The "BETA Version" of the writeup is complete! All images I have and the Youtube videos are up. For sure, there are pictures where I forgot to mark a few things but I'll correct those a little later. Also, you see that steps aren't numbered, they just have a closed parentheses character...well, I didn't put step numbers in only because it's a pain to have to renumber steps if you put something in between, and I've been doing a lot of that. There's also info that I need to verify or go get. Those will be coming up soon. There're some other pics in between < > symbols which are pics that I'm going to try to take now (even though it's after the fact), but again, all the pics that I DID take are up.

Thank you for all the compliments! I'm going to take a small beer vacation and when I'm done, I've got another writeup to do. My E-Cutout wiring one (much shorter!)

Man thank you so much for this write up. I've had my poly mounts for over a year dreading to start because of the issues i keep hearing and all the time it takes to do. Your write up is easy to follow and you have just motivated me to install my mounts. Thanks again for taking the time to write this all up and share with us. Definitely sticky material.

Brings back memories :-)

I had to grind that washer on my dipstick bolt also to get it to go back in there..

I wish I would have not got the headers with the emissions stuff on them. Like the OP said, getting that plug wire on the passenger side by the EGR is a PITA.

I also had the O2 extensions and O2 simms....which I can get rid of the simms since I sent my computer to be tuned.

Add a mail order tune to this now and you will really enjoy your hard work (unless you already have the tune)..I drove around a while without the tune and finally sent my computer to Frost.

It was definately worth the money....

Don

It runs AWESOME! I definitely feel it being faster, and this without a tune, with the cutout closed. Strangely, I feel like it's slower with the cutout open, but whatever, I'm not expecting anything to be perfect without a tune....or front O2 sensors. The sound is JUST FREAKING AMAZING though!!!

But get this, 2 days after I finish this, I go for a cruise, and got a ticket for....ahem...."Squealing Tires."
