Got through a bit more. Just pulling everything that is going to be in the way for a few things and going to toss in a few extras while the engine is out. Just taking my time and planning a path. I don't like tearing things apart more often then necessary. I have some back issues that put me down quite a bit. So I like to plan ahead to save back as well.

Removed the radiator, crash beam, washer reservoir, Ecutek w/flexfuel, and more random crap.

I am trying to keep screws and whatnot with the parts coming off in little baggies and masking tape. If anyone has any tips to keep it all straight please let me know.

Have not touched the car in a couple weeks now, back issues again. But hoping to pickup an engine hoist in the next month or so and pull it finally. First order of business will be to get in and clean out the engine bay. Excited to clean the car up a lot while I work as well. I like to keep my cars pretty-ish even if I am going to beat it a bit.

And Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Worked on the car a little last night. My back has been acting up pretty bad so I had to watch more then work but we got the intake off. Took our time and took some pictures. I am getting more nervous as we pull more and more apart. Putting it all back together will be fun

I hope the next update the engine and transmission are out of the car!!! Goal is to have it out by Christmas. I am in Vegas this next week for work so that may or may not happen depending on how much pain I am in when I get home. Either way SOON!!

I talked with Phil at Element Tuning some more and I am going that direction. He is a really great guy and has spent a good amount of time getting to know me and my goals as we get started.

So the plan
-Element Tuning Pro Comp Motor
Forged Pauter X Beam Asymmetrical Rods
Forged JE 2618 10.5:1 Pistons

So lowering compression to get ready for SC.

They are also going to clean up the heads and install larger valves to allow the engine to rev out to 9000 RPMs!! Going to work with delicious to tune the engine so not sure if we will push it yet. Phil said without going to a standalone we can't control the injectors quite as much so I may not see power all the way up to 9k anyway.

I am working on sourcing a new (to me) transmission and then going to use element tunings transmission oil cooler. It taps in and sprays on the 4th gear syncro. It will definitely keep the transmission cooler and may give a little durability to 4th gear.. not gonna keep my hopes up but we will see.

To keep oil pressures up and hopefully prevent another rod bearing failure I am also installing a Accusump Oil accumulator with the new engine.

More expensive of a project then I really wanted to get into but something like this is the route I have always dreamed going. It's going to be one hell of a car!!

O yah I also dropped the front bumper off at a local body shop to be repainted. Clean up of the nicks and fill in of the license plate holes and give it a fresh coat. Cost $275. I think that's a good price. Have not had much paint work done so not sure. Quoted me $300 for the hood. Figured I would see if he does a good job on the bumper first.

Finally got some time to finish pulling the motor out this past weekend. Came out nice and easy. Had some trouble with the shifter so just pulled it all. I marked the plates on the trans for the reverse lockout. I think I read that needs to be aligned just so as it goes back in.

I plan to clean up the engine bay and replace a lot of bolts before everything goes back together. Was a Chicago daily driver so a refresh will be nice. Make it easier next time around.

Also I noticed my front break calipers have a layer of red surface rust on them! I assume it was from the heat of track driving? I forgot to get a picture but it's much worse on the fronts. I'll upload one this weekend.

Team effort but getting it done! Trying to keep everything coming off of the car labeled and together. Going to start cleaning the rust off of all the bolts that came out next week. Apparently you just soak the nuts and bolts in white vinegar for a couple hours. I'll post the before and after pics.
