Every evening I walk into my garage, look at the pile of parts on the table, look at the car, and think “there is no way those two will ever go back together.”

I am sure this is typical anxiety for a first-timer on a job like this, but damn... it is scary.

I haven’t made a ton of progress since my last update. A few more parts have come off, a LOT of parts have gone into the parts washer, and AMGtech convinced me to go ahead with replacing the front timing gasket, which requires even more disassembly!

Tonight’s project is to do just that. The required gaskets should be in today, so we’re going to drop the oil pan, pull off the front timing cover, clean all that shit up, and re-assemble.
