Worked on the 8.1 a bit the past week. I sprayed wd-40 in the injectors several weeks ago and they've been soaking. I put new o-rings on the them installed them back in the intake.
The fuel rail was flushed and installed too
I cleaned the block with a wire brush, washed it, then wiped down with alcohol before putting that awesome GM blue on.
I'll pull the valve covers next week to clean and paint those and the brackets satin black.
Hope to have some updates on the paint job by then.
