Even have the really light hypereutectic pistons and rods, if you want to go that route. But they're new. You'd spend alot less going with lightly used with Ed Morad. I know he has some L67 pistons and rods.

He hasn't updated his site in what, 2 years? And he'* sold parts to who? NAPA can get you the pistons. Any good auto parts store can order them, too.

I had no idea. It looked plenty up-to-date to me. Sorry about that. Maybe we should post a sticky or something about that? If I was looking for parts, I would have ordered. That pisses me off.

WTF?? I'm still upset about that. Last I remember, DrJay was good people, respectable, honest, and THE person to go to for Series 1 parts. WTF gives??? Did he flip out or what?


**EDIT** Can someone PM me what happened? Thanks...

Have you ever installed the rockers Jwikoff? IIRC you were in on the YT rocker buy.

750 is a lot cheaper then 2000, and the warranty may have details such as must be installed by a proffessional mechanic, etc. Definetly look into that.

Maybe you could sell your Extra TV for an engine..

Other than an engine lift, what specialized tools am I gonna need to do this myself?

How many hours labor would a shop charge to swap it?

I think it should be less than a grand even at the dealer. Maybe $800 dealer and 600 at a shop. would be my best guess.

John..

You need the following deepwell sockets (preferably 6point)
10mm (Most bolts on the main motor intake/tb/oil pan
13mm (Alternator/power steering pump)
15mm (Torque axis mount)
18mm (Trans bolts to engine)
19mm (Lugnuts)
Extension sizes of 3", 6" and the longest you can buy (the backwards bolt is on the engine to trans and you get it from the passenger wheel well) I have two 24 inch for this part.
Normal screwdrivers..one of each
Lots of labelled parts buckets
Leave the fuel rail connected. (don't need a fuel line thingy to disconnect)

All I can think of at the moment..but ratcheting wrenches are nice in some of the situations.
