  1. Ceramic coat the exhaust manifolds. They do the inside as well as the outside so it will make a huge diff. in heat as well as make them look great!

    It will, however make the rest of the exhaust warmer so some exhaust wrap could be in order. You have learned that these cars are stupid hot?

  2. Searching the web for photos today.  I took several photos of the water manifold hardware but I have nothing (as does the shop manual) of which head bolts go where.

    Ditto for which side the temp sender goes, various plugs & fittings... Maybe ya'll can provide some links or photos? I did not expect this engine to be apart for 13 months...

  3. A fresh engine will start around 5K, how much you can do yourself will affect price. To drop off the car & pick it up with the engine restored these days would likely start at 10K. And most of those jobs will require remediation.

    A cheaper option? an '86 Camaro!
