    Haha, just noticed that I kinda forgot this whole thing. I actually got those gaskets and finished the job. All went well, I even painted the intake manifold, so now it looks all nice and pretty.


    Apparently I didn't take any more picture either. I'm so good at this.

    I will replace those lost images at some point, but this time I will just make a little update.

    I think that this pic will tell more than thousand words.


    I didn't bother to take that much pictures, because replacing valve stem seals is actually ****ing boring. Took only one pic when I started to do that on cylinder number 5.


    Also new paint on rocker covers adds 5hp each, so it makes 10hp at this point.





    Also I have to replace intake manifold gasket and to do so I also had to remove throttle body and distributor.





    And finally intake manifold removed.



    I get new gaskets maybe tomorrow, so most likely new pics then.

    I've seen this start happening to a bunch of people, completely pathetic. I would say go Flickr or Postimage.

    I was going to update this thread but as you may notice, Photobucket wants me to update my account if I want to share my pics here. That costs 399.99$/year so hell no, not gonna update that shit.

    Well there's a good use for it.. A leak detector fog machine.

    Most of the time it's just a vacuum leak.. Take your vape mod and fill your intake.. It's pretty damn effective because at least for me, the clouds are very very very thick.. But i'm 80/20 VG/PG

    I did replace that old tie rod end and now this car passed a roadworthiness test. I didn't took any pictures because I was in a hurry.

    Next thing I had to check is why engine tends to struggle in low rpm sometimes. I bet it has vacuum leak or faulty spring in fuel pressure regulator. Also finally get that bull bar fixed.

    I did replace the old headers last weekend. It took so much longer than I predicted. Had to remove power steering and alternator brackets, but now it's done.



    Headers out



    No wonder it was loud and did sound stupid af.



    And one bonus pic of Plymouth Duster, this was next to my van there.



    I had to replace those headers to pass the annual MOT, but it didn't pass. Now I need also get new tie rod end.

    You are the first one to say that. black and maroon red is mint combination, I love it. I saw this car first time right after it was painted and I fell in love with it. Few years later I was thinking that how much I would have to pay for that car. Later that day I noticed it was for sale in Finnish american car forum and I put my van I had then for sale immediately. Thank god I know the guy who had this van and he said that he can wait until I got my car sold, so I get money to buy this one.
