New DI short block is here!!!

I got my new DI short block Friday. I spent all day yesterday taking parts off my old motor and cleaning them all up to go on the short block.

So fare I have the rear cover and seal on, the timing cover, water pump, HPOP, LPOP, and Harmonic Balancer all put back on the new block.

I should be getting back the oil pan tomorrow, I took it in to get cleaned up.

I'm hoping to get it all put back together Wednesday and ready to sit back in the truck this weekend. I'm just waiting on the head studs to get here.

Here is a picture of the block

I know it will have the power here in a few months after I save up to get a 38r to put on there.
