Intercooler piping is done. I never want to put a bead on a tube again...

Things I need to do before I can start the truck

Wiring - mostly in the engine compartment
Coolant lines
exhaust - just the y-pipe crossover for the O2 sensors
oil change - since it has none in it at the moment in both engine and transmission
fill with coolant
hook up and bleed clutch
Mount Cooling fans - Probably option for the first start up

That seems pretty doable now that I have written it down, but the wiring job is going to be a huge pain.

DAH! the curse of school aged children...

between the practices, clubs, wife working late, and all the other family stuff, my evening are gone now that school has started again...

I still think I might be able to start it soon, maybe even drive it around the block before the snow flies? NO way I am going to drive that thing in the snow. Not until I know how it's going to behave when things get sideways (literally)
