Amen. I've been putting parts together for a long time. Last piece of the puzzle is the Xover pipe. Can't decide between pulling the timing covers and doing an OEM style pipe (with updated seal) or doing one of the expandable type pipes. Pulling the covers adds 10x the work (including pulling the front axles from what I have read) but is the way I'm leaning... because why do things the easy way?

Good luck with yours. I'll be following. Until then I'll keep dumping the "secret sauce" into the crank case to stave away the 007 smokescreen on extended idle.
