      No worries.

      I was the same way when I did mine.

      I know I PM'd xandypx at least five times.

      It wasn't until I got my flashlight out and walked out to my driveway that it all came to me.

      I put mine back in. With the catch can in that location I dont feel like undoing all the plumbing, removing that just to fill it up, sooo Ive decided to bling it up! Since the catchcan gets up to about 160* Im going to wrinkle coat the neck, wrap it with some dei thermo wrap, and I ordered a polished jcap

      I took the first step lastnight. Removing the black fabriclike hoodliner and the rubber trim off the front of the hood.

      Engine much more audible.

      Been receiving a lot of PMs about the dipstick:

      -- The dipstick is just the OEM dipstick... basically just scuff it and spray it with a spray paint of your choice. It can also be PlastiDipped.

      Plastidip was given to us from Narnia. Its rubber paint, that you can peel off, tho I'm sure your just being smart

      Don't have any before shots, but I tucked that harness with three connectors on it. The way I re-routed it makes me iffy, but it'll suffice.

      If you look closely, you can see the silver piece where there used to be a little metal bracket.

      I was going to ask your opinion because doing this leaves no slack at all in the harness.

      Looks good! I was going to work on doing this here soon, figure what better time to tear stuff like this apart than when she's in the shop and already torn apart... Doing my S6 light as well, since the front is already off...

      Is there any stress on the harness during driving? That's the only issue I could see you having really... Mainly from engine movement, etc... I'll start ripping into mine tonight, I'll let you know what I figure out and come up with...

      Here's a before shot...



      Much, much better.

      It's just resting underneath the throttle body... don't think there is enough movement to do any damage to the wires.

      Started working on the back and right side yesterday... You're right, that harness really doesn't have much room... But we checked it out and everything seems ok, gonna hopefully finish it up tonight...

      BTW, driving out car with no hood on is crazy loud, LOL!

      What's a good way to clean the actual engine block? Lightly damp cloth with regular soap/water?
