550 Bulletproofing In Progress
Finally got started on the 550. Have about 5 hours into it already.
Removed fan, radiator,intercooler,degas,batteries, inner fender well pass side, alternator,wire harness, ficm, glow plug module,hoses, and started on the turbo.
Been going pretty good so far. Taking my time. Was pretty skeptical about doing this, that ended about an hour into...LoL
So far my basic tool supply has been working good. Made a wrench for the fan, and have to make something for the glow plug harness. Picked up a 20v 1/4in Dewalt impact, works awesome on the tear down. No air tools.
Got all my parts in from Tousley. Saved about $800.00 compared to my local Ford dealer in parts. Tomorrow ordering ARP's , Snap On torque adapter, BDP water pump and a few other things including a SCT Livewire Ts. Hope to get my turbo and injectors out this week to get re worked.
Picking up a shop crane from Harbor Freight Tuesday. Hope to have the heads off and at the machine shop by Friday.
Pics coming soon.
