Its great to be able to help. Honestly..I get quite a bit of enjoyment out of it. Look at it from my point of view

Phone rings
"These freaking downpipe bolts.. they won't move!"
"They are 15mm..and if you jack the car..use blah blah blah, they should come free or break"
"ok..we'll try more tomorrow, the babe and I are getting ice cream"


Next day
"These bolts are just turning..they don't seem to be coming out"
"Keep turning..they'll either come out or snap, either way..they'll be out fo the way"
"ok..I'll give it a try and call ya back"
"k.. <snicker, at how rusty these bolts must be>

Last night
"ok.. got the power steering..Where the heck is this backwards trans bolt???"
"Did you take out the bracket from trans to engine over in this area"
"The bolts are out..but yeah..its still there.. bolts are out though"
"it needs to come out. There'* still two bolts in it 13mm going into the block"
"Nooo the bolts are out..I'm looking at iiiiii... oh..those bolts eh. but where'* the backwards bolt?"
"You can't see it until the bracket is out of the way"
"oooohhh ok, I'll call you back when it'* out"

Time passes
"What the heck is this darn Torque axis bracket thing..how does that come out?"
"Crawl under..loosen these two 15mm bolts.. "
"ok.."

Lot of time passes
"They wouldn't come loose..we got it with a big hammer though."

"Yeah..Don kept hitting it and got it out, it'* the French Canadian way"

"The motor is out.."
"Good ... when'* the other going to be out?"
"Well..I gotta go..my girl and I are gonna get ice cream"

Now...for those of us that met TJ.. we know..he can eat all the darn ice cream he wants.. Freaking toothpick..

More then likely i will play with the blown motor. Maybe practice taking it apart and putting it back together type of thing. I would like to get more comfortable with these engines, and i am probably going to do the same thing with the blown tranny (sometime). I maybe also decide to sell some of the parts off the blown engine but i am unsure. If i do it will be a little down the road and go towards the header fund lol
