I wouldnt attemt it,I think there may be some special tools required to do it also,I just paid to have mine done with a warrenty,and another thing to think of is if you do something wrong you will be the one that has to pull it out again and a possibility of damageing other parts

I have been thinking of the same thing, doing a rebuild myself. I have seen one or two posts on here where guys said they did thier own, but they never got into any details. I looked into the kit, with the needed upgrades and some extra strength and it came out to be just over $ 500.00. I'm thinking of spending the money for the kit and trying it myself.......and if it doesn't turn out right, I'll eat the 500 and take it in, but I have been kinda waiting to hear some more horror or positive stories first.

From what I have seen and heard, getting and keeping everything clean is a big plus during reasembly. Looking forward to your future posts, good luck.

If you get a manual it's not that hard. On a side note, $2500 is pretty cheap especially if it comes with a warranty. You can pretty much kiss the warranty goodbye on any parts you buy because they are not installed by an ASE mechanic if you do it yourself (assuming your not an ASE).
