Finally putting this engine together, it's going smooth so far, fingers crossed.
My exhaust manifolds hardware is in very poor condition, can you use stainless there ?
I was thinking about skipping spacers and use allen SS with spring washer and anti seize compound ?
Any reason why I should not do this ?

Cheers

I would shy away from
Using stainless ....bolts are weak and increased chance of corrosion....a quality grade 8 with anti seize and lock washer would be fine

Anyone has an explanation on function of the exhaust bolt spacers on the 4.6 ?
My 2c is that they will give more space around head of the bolt, easier removal and installation, but I've heard that they act as springs () and also that they allow better torquing ?

idle dropping

Finally finished this, took some time but the result is neat.

Engine started fine, just after very few cranks, it's reving very well, you can feel the torque, but after it get to normal operation temperature it won't hold a stable idle, it will drop and sometimes die.

I will check IACV and vacuum line tomorrow, any other ideas or suggestions ?

Cheers

Found the issue, bad MAF sensor, voltage not rising with RPM. Put a new genuine Bosch MAF sensor and it's all fine, nice and quiet idle, no drop and no stall.

Cheers
