Hopefully, but I'm getting the run around about my valve cover. Guy keeps saying he's going to ship it and doesn't. I still have my original but I want to put it all back together with the new look and bigger case ports.:mad:

I bought this seal due to it being in the parts diagram for the CAS housing. Upon disassembly I did not find an old one inside and have no idea how it is installed or if I even need it.

Don’t think you need that if you’re running the cas. Might be the plug if you’re not running one. Not 100% sure though. Make sure you orientate the cas pick up correctly. With #1 cylinder at tdc it should fit this way

Do you have any specific ways that you use to smooth the cam bearings. I have 3 on the intake cam that feel a little bumpy. It is super light, i didn't know if i should leave it or polish it up a bit but dont want to damage the ID of the bearing.

I sent him pictures, he seems to think they are in good shape the metal isn't carved at all its only a line pattern. I think he's just going to lightly smooth the one.

Hey what’s up man. Got some pics for you. Here’s the bracket that I have in the trunk. I currently have it mounted in the spare but it might be moved to the right side of the trunk. Maybe LOLll I’d like to build a new floor so that way i have all trunk space available.

So the ground is just bolted to a good ground with paint removed. The positive is ran to the front where I have it on the Evo x fusible link. From there i connected all the wires such as the harness and starter. I made a bracket and put it in front of my catch can

All the parts for the fusible link are available on maperformance. I think it’s a total of three things.
What battery did you use? red top 25?
