Sunday afternoon I started the tear down for ARP studs, OEM gaskets, blue spring upgrade, standpipes and dummy plugs, 6.4 banjo bolts, upgraded STC fitting, upgraded IPR screen, upgraded oil feed and drain tubes and bulletproof oil cooler.
So far I've run into two minor setbacks both of which the ORG has come to my rescue within minutes. I,m 11 hours in and have the hood, grill, fan shroud, alternator, manifold, EGR cooler, turbo and oil cooler out. I need to get the tool to remove the fittings at the bottom of the rad for the transmission cooler lines. If I don't get one by tomorrow I will just cut them and use compression fittings to put them back together. I want to remove the rad and intercooler leaving the condensor in place to install the Bulletproof cooler. This way I won't have to evac the AC. The hood I removed so I can use my gantry crane to lift off the heads as space is limited and a hassle to use my engine hoist to lift them off. Lucky for me I have a furnace in the garage as it's pretty flippin cold out the last couple of days. -2F Sunday.
Supposed to be up around 45F by Wednesday.
As soon as I get a few minutes I will post some pictures, (They start on post #14 of this thread) just trying to get to the heads so I can get them to the machine shop ASAP.
