yeah when i get back i will have 2 or 3 weeks of R and R so i will order all the parts i need while over in the desert, help me with this list if you know of stuff i need.
do you think it will be easier to just pull the motor and do all the work on an engine stand?
i dont have a stand or cherry picker so i would have to buy one. i really want to mill the heads to accept a MLS gasket to make it bullet proof except i would have to then flush all the coolant and replace with some high dollar non-acidic type and replace and flush every 2 years max.
port and polish
mill heads to accept MLS gaskets if possible (do you mill both the block and the head? or just the heads) to get them flat. the tolerances are half of the gasket that comes on the 3.0l
possibly rings(but i think the lower half is fine)
hoses ill just by when i get back.
headers from LCE (seem to be the best for heat xfer)
what should i do about the sensors? replace them?
also mandy will let me buy a 22re or 22r for a rebuild motor to play with while i wheel with the v6. then ill switch them and fix the v6 up something fierce.
otherwise i would give it to you and just let you have it til it was done. just pay for the parts and your beer and wait. but the wife will let me buy more tools if i do it myself but it will take longer. so its a trade off
