Figure 133. Bundled the wires together into groups to start sleeving the harness. One mistake made was using vinyl electrical tape to group the wires together. It leaves a sticky residue when you take it off. Do not use it on your build. The coils on each side are grouped, as well as the injectors. Then the other sensors on each side are grouped together.

Figure 134. Here you can see the coils and injectors grouped up, along with the map sensor and oxygen sensor. Also, a set of used coils were bought from ebay that were in far better shape than the coils that were on the original engine. They look much nicer and are not so rusty and nasty.

Figure 136. Installed the new Lokar dipstick, but ran into a problem, it will not go down all the way, as can be seen in the photo. The stick is hitting on something, which is assumed to be the windage tray. The oil pan will have to be pulled back off to fix this problem.
