Here are a couple of pix from my job last week:
New LIM and Valve cover gaskets in place:
I bought my LIM at Oreileys and they price matched Auto Zone $37.99 for that.
Also notice that the one coolant elbow on the left side is broken off at the o ring groove, and the broken part is still up inside in the next pic, which is of the alternator mounting bracket. Make sure your old coolant elbows don't leave any pieces behind, like up inside the passage where it came from.. You can buy the two coolant elbows at most parts stores, Dorman help rack , like $3
Alternator mounting bracket/tensioner pulley, upper coolant elbow, (right side of pic) still in place::
Fuel rail assemly removed:
If you have trouble removing the fuel line fittings, make sure you are using the proper size special release tool, availble for about $10 at parts stores.
You can buy the injector O rings in a kit. I bought fel pro: 4 orings in one kit=enough to do two injectors. You need 3 kits for all 6 injectors, 12 orings total. You should go ahead and replace these while its off. My lower ones where they go into the head were dry rotted at 55k.
Felpro supercharger gasket # MS95744, Comes with the yellow coolant o rings. If you go to the dealer for this gasket, make sure you buy them seperately. Just an FYI, I looked at both gaskets and they are made by the same company.
Here is a pic where I put my supercharger belt on wrong: Yes it will fit and work, just don't make the same mistake I did. Note how it is almost rubbing the water pump pulley, WRONG!! Take time to seperate the belts to where you know which one goes on where. The diagram for your belt routing is in the owners manual.
Here is a diagram of the belt routing:
Here is a link to the torque specs for the LIM and the Supercharger:
The drain plug for the radiator on the 2000 SSEI is on the drivers side of the radiator, accessible from the lower front of the car without removing the splash pan, drain plenty out so it doesn't make a mess when you pull your intake:
And get yourself a good torque wrench, one that goes from about 20 to 250 inch pounds and your set. You can buy one or rent one at some parts stores.
And get that dexcool out of there, put in some any make any color, any car Prestone, the green/yellow stuff, about $10 a gallon.
Good luck to you!
