I just noticed how baller this setup is. Maybe the next thing I do, harbor freight shit is getting old...

It's got around 500 miles on it so far. The engine itself runs great and I've had no mechanical issues with it since installing it, however it has had small oil leaks in common locations on the bottom of the timing cover and cam cover since I got it back in. I attempted to patch them with sealant more than a few times, but they've persisted.

The car is currently at Atlanta Speed Company to have the leaks addressed. They'll be getting to it this or next week as I'm in no rush. It's just kept me from driving the car a lot since the timing cover leak is very slowly dripping on one of the manifold runners and I noticed the wrap smoking a little bit once the engine is fully warmed up. Not willing to risk anything, and I don't have the time nor the resources (shop equipment) anymore to address it myself.
