Well, after 6 months of planning and a few set backs here and there, all the parts are finally in and lets just say I am a very happy person right now!!

As stated in the other thread we were not able to install the "go" parts because one of the parts came in damaged and had to be sent out for repairs. Not a big deal but we had Erik (Hemi31) all lined up to do the install and had no idea when he would be back again to do it. After a lot of reading and thinking I decided to do the install myself.

So, first off, I would like to thank LXForums (too many people to name) for all the how-to, what if, this part goes here, beware of this, etc.. threads related to a head/cam swap. Between this great resource , the Service manual, and a few texts so some vendors and friends, I was able to get this done over a long weekend. The car started up on the first try and I am working with Johan right now tuning it up.

Here are a few pics of the install. These were taken with my cell phone so they are not the best.

Now the good camera. Still have a few items to put on, but I would say it is 95% done.
