Thanks Joel. What about on the back of the engine. I have  an engine leveler that has four mounting points. The bolt at the back holding the coil pack bracket is much bigger, would that be enough to hoist from on the back side?

To my memory I only had my leveler at the coil and the front of the head.  Possibly a third mount somewhere. But those were the main two.  You should be ok with that. Maybe a third one for safety.

Yeah just having mine down for over a month is no fun.  Especially with the short season. Now that I'm back to work I barely have any time period.

Hyd. coupler to the clutch ... I can unscrew my shifter handle from the driver's seat...  Unclip the transmission harness on D side 3/4 way up the trans.  I hit my reverse light switch on the tunnel frame and broke the plastic so I recommend removing that before pulling engine ...

Will do!
I didn't get home from work until 1am this morning doing server conversions for a couple big clients, so didn't end up getting to work on the car at all.
I might have time to put a couple hours into it tonight, and hopefully get it out.

 :headscratch:

I forgot to mention that t would be worth 20whp if you hone the Intake manifold on a stock engine.  On a Paxton there would be much more power gained from the hone.  Adrln in Edm has a hone - not sure if he'll do it for you, but with several months to get it done he probably would....

Hey Burt, Welcome to the viper garage!
I have been so darn busy I haven't got the engine out of the car yet, but I'm thinking we may be there around the Calgary Stampede week so we can see some friends at the same time.
Totally depends when I get the engine out of the car, but it's very close..

Well, we are doing stryker heads, I'm thinking it would be great to go to the gen 3 style, and get a gen 3 intake which would REALLY help the looks under the hood if it's do-able.
I will talk to Ron more once we are at that stage to see.
Ahhh shoot, would also have to get a different paxton charge-tube setup if that was the case.... I will do some thinking!

... and Throttle body.  Injectors might not fit?

Clint has a 1 piece Gen 3 manifold for sale if you want, but the one piece can't be ported and from what Dan (VS) posted you'd probably LOSE hp as compared to a stock Gen 2 manifold.

Yeah........ I will just do some candy apple red paint and dress everything up as sexxy as possible with the gen 2 stuff.
I just love the looks of the gen 3 engine with the polished intake and painted valve covers!

You'll need spacers if you use Gen 3 valve covers.  Personally, I like the Gen 2 intake best, it's much more imposing.  Some guys polish the intake, but that takes a lot of work to maintain ... and I hate maintaining aluminium.

Sheldon decided to disassemble his engine himself.  Here's what he found.

A bit of JB Weld, and a good splash of Holy Water is all she needs to get back to the races!  :driving:
