Thanks Levent.. This update is for you.
I chose to keep the stock M52 exhaust manifolds instead of buying the long tubes as I read that they create problems. I had that Air Intake tube holes welded. Sanded and prepared the headers for High Heat Header Paint.
Once those were ready I waited for a nice package from GUTEN to arrive at the my door. The order was brand new studs and copper bolts. The headers were heat wrapped by me just for the look.
So update for today, I needed most of the stuff for the ODB1 swap and instead of buying everything, I found a M50 VANOS for 500$... The block and head wont be needed as all the pulleys. The motor will be stripped ASAP. I also have a red label 413 for sale.
