It's looking great.
Isn't it a nice feeling when you hear the first pop or vroom? Always puts a smile on my face.

Crane made it much easier than trying to lift out and in by hand.  Takes two people.  Noel

No, the plug wire was upgraded before , I just cleaned it to make it stand out. It was out of a set my sons friend had put on his mustang. Noel
