    Yea was nervous. Had a coolant system issue but was A stuck thermostat.

    Now I just have a minor exhaust leak on the hotside where the vbands mate up on driver side. Going to see what I can do to rectify this without cutting and re welding.

    The kit must have warped. I know that I didnt have this issue when it was on the old motor.

    Finally got I car idling some what smooth. Once I get that squared away then start street tuning!
