took everything apart this weekend to clean valves and install the powell air/oil seperator. was pretty happy too see how clean the inside of the motor is. the valves were a different story.

The top is obviously before we cleaned them. we used acdelco top engine cleaner and some carb cleaner. scraped it all off with picks and tooth brushes. Thanks to joe aka ThePanduuh for the help.

while doing the valves i installed the powell air/oil seperator.

while reinstalling i added the performance autowerks phenolic intake spacer and throttle body spacers.

Tonight december 24th i finished it up and started her for the first time. runs great. now i need to get her retuned.

everything all finished up. very tedious but rewarding job.

it does. Still has alittle idle surge but it needs tuned. Also need to order another seperator tank from Powell. The seal on this one is broken a bit.

I messaged him last week and he said he has revised the separator so maybe you can get one of the new versions.

i will have to message him and get one sent to me. Joe said it didnt work for him but when we took it off his car for the LDK swap some of the fittings were loose and the canister itself has a bad seal. pretty sure that is why he had bad luck with it.
