Update:
As of today Thursday the 27th of June the engine is sitting on the ground and I think is a now Long Block as I have removed all the accessories. Pictures following. My question at the moment is What is the best gasket set I should get to put my engine back together with.

dirty, nasty,

pressure wash tomorrow

Ken,

I've copied the latest post from your Intro thread to a new thread in X308 forum. Now you have got to the engine removed stage, this is the place to post technical questions.

As you only want to do this once, don't compromise the work and fit OEM parts
like the show aircraft investigations, a bolt or part say for the steering will be of utmost importance, especially if the aftermarket break's

With the motor out, now would be the time to do the subframe bushings. They are gone on my 42K mile car.

Hi AJ16er,
It was Sharper Edge Engines out of CA.
It's so pretty it's scary. Makes you wonder how far they went for 3200.00
I am very pleased though, started attaching the other parts last night and I can,t find anything so far that isn't carefully put together.
I was wondering if anybody knew where torque values could be found so I could make sure I have everything torqued properly.

If you will send me a private message with your email I can send a link to my drop box that has the X308 Tech Manual in PDF and you can download it.
