After that I installed the header studs, bolted the manifolds back on with the new CATS and buttoned that all down. During disassembly I found a broken line on the PCV system, so had to replace that as well. Then I replace all the coils. FYI if you buy new GM brakets you have to thread the holes for all the bolts (WTF right?) as they come blank.

Cost:
PCV Lines: $105.00 GM 12590632
Total for this post: $105.00
Total Overall: $2159.00

Header Studs installed

New CATS installed with comical amounts of PB blaster still all over the engine from getting them off..

Coil packs ready for assembly

New PCV lines, they were a ton of fun to put on with the wiring harness still there

And then, put it all back together, fired right up and purring like a kitten. To recap I found a vacuum/oil leak in the PCV, one broken plug wire that was barely making a connection and also all 8 plugs were not only gapped incorrectly from a previous change, but weren't even all the same gap.

That's it for this round, that should hold the exhaust over until I get to the rest of it. Hopefully now I can find time to get back to the control arms and rear suspension. Also if anyone knows where to find a stainless intermediate pipe please LMK, mine won't be salvageable.
