    Thanks. I think a toyota could survive an emp so I don't think you have to worry about making the switch anytime soon. Lmao

    Yeah! that is the one I found on Etsy, I guess he is alllll over. I'm not running the stock valve cover, so I might take some measurements to see if the raised part for the sticker is the same size. He also sells the TURBO EFI sticker for the intake plenum, which is super cool.

    I finished the building and wrapping of my new sub boxes and rear shelf today. Pulled the old Pioneer head unit.
    Now it is just a waiting game until the new double din comes in. I'm assuming that it will need some fabrication to fit in.

    Still waiting on the new cylinder hone.

    Happy to report that I found a machine shop that will help me with the rods' pin bushings work! decent price, and good turnaround time, so when I find time to drop them off I'll do that, and they should be back before the last of the parts for my build come in. And I just can't say enough how beautiful the Pistons I got from Jim over at 22REPerformance are! I can't wait to mate them to the I beam rods I got from him a while back. I'm getting super excited to really start building this RTE up.

    I finished the new subwoofer/back shelf assembly, and got the new double din installed. Things turned out great! I wired the plug for my phone into the glove box.

    This morning I shipped out my fuel injectors for servicing. I also picked up my rods with their bushing all machined up for the new wrist pins.

    I spent the evening working on the head. I installed the new cam, the valves, and put together the new rocker assembly.

    Today I honed out the cylinders to a point that I was happy with. I ended up with a surface that I liked, with good crosshatching from the hone. With that done, I was able to go ahead installing the crankshaft and rear main seal.

    I also took the time to relocate the knock sensor. While I had it out, I hit it with some scotch brite.

    I did a test fit of the crank scraper, and it fit well with fine clearances around the crank. All of the holes lined up with the oil pan, so I expect that to be an easy install when the time comes. For now, it is waiting time again. When I get my piston rings, I will able to move ahead with finishing up the bock.
