Getting All Fired Up!

Today the rocker arms were installed and we adjusted them down. Couldn’t really tell any immediate changes performance wise, but it sure was good to see and hear the engine run again. It sure did make a mess too. Oil splashing all over too. It will need a good pressure washing when it is all back together.

I got one header on and will continue on the other side tomorrow. I opted for the unpainted headers as opposed to paying nearly $400 for ceramic coated ones. Besides saving money, I found this 2000 degree ceramic coated paint for headers. If it works, I’ll be glad I saved the money.
