    Well after my little one went to her moms I got the new cam thrust plate installed, with the new trickflow ls2 tensioner bracket, so nowi have a timing chain tensioner. Also upgraded to the ls2 heavy duty timing chain. Siliconed and mounted the oil pan. Need to order head bolts but my cell phone took a shiit so I have to go get a new one tomorrow. Otherwise I would have pictures up for you all

    well shame on me for thinking. but i only received 1 ls9 head gasket in my parts. i saw the 1 in the box and just figured. so now my other gasket is on order.

    torquing the new arp head bolts. i dont use the lube they give you becuase they never give you enough. been building engines for years and always use #2 compound(peanut butter) from back in my days at Freightliner.  never had an issue with it what so ever so if you guys ever need to build an engine invest in this.

    all assembled and torqued down. stuffs all ways to nice to cover up.. clear valve covers anyone? Rolling Eyes Cool

    [img][/img] new 7.400 x .080 push rods installed as well.
