Thanks for this. I'll probably do mine now just because. I also have to do my oil pan gasket.

I should have just bought an entire engine gasket kit at this rate!

If you already have the LIM out, there isn't much more to get the valve covers off. The front is easy, the back you have to take out the alternator and tensioner I believe so make sure you have new coolant elbows.

Finished up the rebuild on my buddy luke'* 06 mustang'* 5r55s trans for the fourth time in two years..all the parts hes been buying are supposed to be good for 1200Hp but hes putting down about 730 at the flexplate.Well while talking to a mustang trans expert he claims due to the car being such high HP that still having the factory TC is whats aiding in its premature death. (sense the car hardly hooks till mid third gear) so with the new tune he order'd the TC is out and i have to install that as soon as it comes in.Also adjusted his line pressure somebody had it a little high.today i have a water pump,window regulator and two struts to do..Then its on to my camaro for installation of all the polyurethane i order'd along with my new exhaust,shifter and SFC'*!
