make sure you get the 4v motor with the individual coils like yours. Im having issues because my 2000 gt had the individual coils but the 97 cobra motor i got had the 2 coil packs up front.

Yep if you are using 99 or later GT, you need the one with the COP, or you can just get the valve covers from a 97.

The motor was already clean and grease free and I did wind up cleaning the engine bay up more.
