I noticed you have the factory pre-heat flex hose. Just a heads up, that hose runs to your airbox thermo activated flap. Commonly if the thermo switch fails, it will fail open(which then allows heated air to continue to the intake even when you don't need the pre-heated air). The complaint is this can fatigue the AMM prematurely. It's fine to use this system, as long you know the switch/flap works(I removed the flex hose on mine, to avoid this potentially expensive repair issue).

Thanks for the heads up. Iíve got a new thermostat for that flap that Iím dropping in this weekend. Itís a new-to-me project car but itís slowly coming together.
