If anyone thinks anything here is mismatched or just doesn't look right let me know, this is a fuel injected engine. Will be tuned with a SCT tuner when its finished.

A few parts on the list I haven't typed up are high volume oil pump and pickup, hardened 3/8" pushrods (need to measure length when I get the old ones out of the engine)

I'll upload pictures when I get done with the major steps.
