All the valve covers, all pieces of the cooling system, banks intercooler tubes (if they fit in the oven) and few brackets will be powder coated at the same too.

Y bridge in....may have an issue with intake fitment on turbo, Won't know til its almost all the way back together.

Broke the return line that connects to the back of the drivers side head and connects to main return line to the tank...

If anyone has one...please let me know.

4 injectors are in.

First thing tomorrow, or tonight if I find the motivation. Valve covers get degreased and powdercoated.

Starting to come together.

Just eyeballing the Y bridge....its gonna be damn close, may need to get a different connector for the boost line.

Here are some pics for now. Have a bunch more on the camera.

Upper valve cover is baking now. Should be eye popping when its out and on.
