Figure 101. Started working on the new harness. To begin, we hooked up the old harness to all the sensors so we can measure for length of wires to put on the new connectors. There are a LOT of wires.

Figure 102. This is a shot of the injectors and wiring on the passenger side. Trying to decide if the wires will be run on the inside or the outside of the injectors and rail.

Figure 103. Painted the intake manifold bolts the copper color. They really look nice against the black plastic manifold. It is attention to these small details that really make a build look awesome. Some more intake hardware will probably be painted also down the road as we approach final installation of components.

Figure 104. The new Proform valve covers have some in. Unfortunately, the ones with the LS-X emblem only come in red. We are going to change that. The emblem will be painted copper, while the remainder of the valve cover will be painted gloss black. Once we saw the valve covers with the emblem, we had to have those for this engine, so it fits with the website. Plain generic just will not do.
