    Re: $hit just got real!

    All back together! Nice! Since you already spun it over and checked for no noises, something you may consider doing is cranking it over a couple times for ~10 sec at a time (with inj. fuses still pulled), with some time in between for starter cool down, until you can verify you have oil pressure. This will assure you that when your tuner does get there and is ready to tune, you know for sure you got your pick up o-ring in the pump properly and don't have to worry about not having oil pressure. Not absolutely necessary, but good piece of mind.
    Trying to fire it up at this point isn't something I would recommend, but probably wouldn't do anything bad if it will run at all. Without the proper injector data, proper throttle area scalar, plus the cam airflow it will definitely run like poop if at all, dumping fuel. Everything looks good under the hood though!!

    Ok, I'll start it for about 10 secs and make sure I have oil pressure. I know for a fact that I got the oring right. At least I think I did lol. I took my time and rechecked that and everything else like 3x each, so I'll do some finger crossing and praying

    How does driveability compare with stock?

    Sweet, just out of curiosity, how do people like HP tuners on here? I still have my HPtuners suite and stuff and I was going to tune my car with it, but if EFI live is a ton better maybe I'll get rid of the HP setup and get EFI

    I'm not a tuner (my guy is from Lingenfelter) but you could tweak and amazing amount of parameters. It was pretty sweet how much stuff you do.
