This wait is over, the parts have started to come in. Received the Trick Flow upper and lower intakes today along with the manual steering gear kit. Still waiting on several other components to arrive before the engine mods can start. Here is a picture of the engine compartment in its current state.

Dan is getting prepared to install the manual steering kit. If all goes as planned it will be finished by this afternoon.
