well, been out of town on work for the past 3 days, so no progress on the Monte. Did get the oil pressure switch (hopefully) in. It was a b**** to get in.

Did order a set of these in gold. Can't wait to get them

yeah, got the last clamp covers painted, so I should be able to get the hose on, get the fender wells on and start it up. Going to be out of town again this week, but HOPEFULLY will be able to get it to the exhaust shop next weekend and start to enjoy it!!!

Looks great Tim. How does it sounds with the new exhaust?

Frank, right now it's pretty much open headers..the one side is not connect to anything, and the other just has the pipe shoved in the header outlet. It's loud and has a nice rummble to it, so we shall see how it changes once the exhaust is connected. At this poiint I'm just getting my existing exhaust connected.

My wifes comment was, "Is it suppose to sound like that??"
My oldest said "thats loud... sounds like a race car" as see covered her ears and ran away.
Youngest said "Ohhhhh (with excitement, pointed at the car, then put on a smily giggle)"

I have hope that one of my girls will be into cars lol

Well exhaust is on, not as loud as I was hoping, but I guess I got use to the leaky manifold for over a year, so now this sounds like a mouse lol. have a couple vacuum leaks to take care of, but shouldn;t be too bad. I'll get some pics and clips of the work later.

Tim, adding headers won't make it louder, just give you more flow at open throttle. Fix those leaks!!!!LMAO!!

I forget what year/model jeep that steering shaft came out of.  Need to go low budget this year will be building a house so I won't have too much expendeable cash this year. Thanks for the info.

Paul (Rex)

Paul, Pre 94 Grand Cherokee. After 95 they went to a narrow end at the column end. And good luck on the new house!

Tim, those Gold wire separators will look great on the black motor

Nice. I love those wheels on the Montes. But only in chrome. If it isn't chrome, it isn't Kevin, is my motto....
