By the way, I got everything back together last night, and apparently I did everything right the first time, because it fired right up!

Hooked it up to the computer and everything looked good from that end as well. Throttle bodies were still balanced just fine, and engine response was good.

This maintenance sucks, and if you actually have to do a valve adjustment it will suck even more so (I didn't have to do one). If anyone else does this and can take pictures, please tell your story here... I am particularly interested in hearing what they do with all that bloody wiring that gets in the way, and also how much trouble they have getting that cursed coolant piping out and back in again (really, I consider that to have been the hardest part!)
