Like the title states IT'S ALL TOGETHER! I had the heads, cam and header installed yesterday by none other Hemi31 (Eric). We started at 7:30am and finish around 6pm. We would have been finished sooner but kooks labelled the cat incorrectely and we installed them backwards. So we had to drop the exhaust to get the cats off and reinstall them correctly. Besides that everything went smooth as a baby bottom. After we checked everything 3 times it was time for the startup. I removed the 93 octane tune, installed the stock tune with raised rpm (850) and added 15% fuel across the board(for safety). We turn the key and held it till the EVIC showed 37 for the fuel pressure then we let it go. The next crank she started up right away. She was idling around 1200rpm because we forgot to connect one thing...the vacuum line on the intake manifold. Once we connect that it was purring like a kitten. I didn't take any sound clips of the idle but she sounds mean. I will try and take some tonight and post pics. Next, installing the port intake manifold and cmr tune. STAY TUNED! (pun intended!)

I'll like to give a special thanks to Eric for putting his magic touch on my car. Even after seeing only the bare block in the engine bay I wasn't worried. Also thanks to jonzmgnm (john), flybyu (dan), brilliant black hemi (robert) and Vinnie for their assistance in the upgrade. Vinnie was nice enough to lend us his garage for the weekend.

These are some of the pics I took of Eric and Robert working on the car. I couldn't really take many pics because I was working on the car too. I will post more from my other memory card tonight...
