now that all the oil is now out the exhaust it back on the car, and if more or less finished every thing off, its all up and running now

That's quite the way to remove the oil, normally I use gasoline but for the volume of an exhaust system it might be a pain to do.

Having the CF headlight covers looks so much better than painted ones with the CF hood.

What is that part / black valve that is in the upper left part of the intake manifold?

Great project, I have had a lot of fun watching all the modifications. Precious GT4
