Starting to clean up the motor one side at a time, Got the intake and exhaust manifold pulled ( to my suprise all the bolts came out very easy )






Knew the exhaust manifold was cracked and prevously welded a few times





Time for an upgrade, picked up some pacesetter headers off ebay a few months back for $147.50 shipped





Quick coat of paint since they had some paint chips from being moved around. ( also painted the motor mount )





Cleaned and painted the intake manifold and heat shield





Block after a cleaning and some paint








Throttle cable bracket cleaned and painted as well





Painted the bolts and will have to swap the washers with the new ones that came with the headers ( forgot all about them till i called it a day )





Shinned up the brass fittings with a wire wheel





Exhaust mocked up





All assembled








Hopefully i can find a good egr tomarrow from the jy, Apparently the egr tube needs to be modified to fit the headers, its off by a solid 5/8 and need to get the one bolt in behind tube 4. Think i will try to grind it down some

Previous total - $1365
Headers $147.50
Cost to date- $1512.50

Had another good weekend on the comanche and made some more progress on the engine

Pulled some accessories off the front



Did not take too many before pictures, but here are some of the almost finished product

New Waterpump and painted pullys



Upgraded the fan clutch with one from a 98 ZJ and painted the fan




New high flow thermostate housing and 180 degree stat




Cleaned and painted the a/c compressor and brackets



Picked up a new to me valve cover from work, Nice upgrade



Upgraded the oil temperature sensor for when i do the gauge cluster swap



Front assembled



Changed the plugs and wires and they sent me the wrong cap and rotor :fs1:



Not too bad for a few hours of work

Still need to swap injectors
Add a second coat of paint to the valve cover and install
Wait for the brown santa to bring me alternator
Order a new cap and rotor
Change oil pan gasket and paint/clean
decide what to do with my throttle body ( really want to add the h.o one )
Swap in water temp sensor for futue gauge swap
I know I'm forgetting a few other items on the to-do list

If theres anything else i should swap out or upgrade feel free to chime in

Those 'banana' leaves look like helper springs. They are only helpful when under load, which maintains the factory ride quality while the bed is empty.
