Mine showed up as well. Thank you very much! I am planning on trying to get it installed on Friday provided we pull out of this deep freeze we are in so it makes it easier to get the garage warmed up. If I do get it installed I will try and get my digital camera figured out how to shoot a movie(all I have ever used it for the last 4 years is still pictures) then will also have to figure out how to upload it.

So if I get the video thing worked out the long awaited video of a car the MRT V2.0 with these HFC's will be posted.

PS Thanks for the T-shirt, it looks cool.

Not sure I am that impressed with some of the welding on these HFC's. I opened the box and checked them out and one bank has a pretty good sized gob of weld on the inside. Splatter wasn't cleaned off so for those that have bought it and attempting to install themselves the splatter is sharp around the flanges that bolt to the head. The way GM designed this engine I have no clue how I am going to install the passenger side, the access to the nuts on the head are a bear. Also, I am gathering you have not made instructions for the LFX application? The instructions I was sent in the PDF file are for the LLT engine. So I tried to wing it. After an hour attempt at trying to figure out how to pull the nuts off the passenger bank, especially the 2 rear ones, I gave up. The drivers side looks easy with easy access. Looks like this install will have to wait as I am thinking I am going to have to have it done professionally. If you attempt to do this yourself I would suggest you do the passenger side first because you don't want to end up with the drivers side on and not be able to get the passenger side done. For those that bought and do it themselves good luck. Let me know how you were able to tackle the passenger side.

You have to access from underneath, its really not that hard from there. The studs may come out, but thats ok, once you remove them, take off the nuts and put the stud back in. It helps to have a gear ratchet and air tools.

Thanks for the info. I will have to try from underneath then. But to me it looked like it would be impossible to reach them from the under the car. I'm working with the car on jack stands and not a car lift (which would be the ultimate way to work on this) so reach is limited. Just didn't look like it could be done from the bottom side. It looked easier from the top side and wanted to do it before jacking the car up. Well maybe another try at another time.

I am going to have to wait until another weekend to do this because I just couldn't get the garage up to temp that was comfortable to work in. We have been in a deep freeze here and can't seem to get the garage up to temp with the heat I have. I normally don't work in the garage when it is below zero and today it is not warming up.

What would you recommend for a gear ratchet set? A nice quality set that isn't stupid expensive? Between my car and my motorcycle, I have a need for a ratcheting wrench far too often... :(

I have the Sears ones, but some longer ones would be nice, but they are $$$. At least with sears, if it breaks I get new ones..
