Default Tearing up my 94

This is an ongoing effort dating back to these threads:

https://www.gmforum.com/t263580/

https://www.gmforum.com/t274858/

So, now I'm working on completely repainting the car and swapping in a Series II L67 with a turbocharger and a manual 6-speed transmission. But first, I have to tear down the engine bay.

We lost some chocolate covered raisins. It was a sad day...

The exhaust manifold has been taken off! On the Series 1, the front EM and the crossover are one and the same.

The crowbar my friend brought over to try to help remove electrical connectors and such made its debut when it struck my AC condenser to cause the most vicious spraying of foul smelling, green-dyed R134a. Now there'* a film of it all over the engine bay!

Good to see you getting this thing off the ground. I feel your pain about the raisins. They made a great sacrifice. I have an idea, sending a PM

When you start tearing a car apart, you sure run out of garage space quickly. Thanks for the updates!

..like Toddster said...more photos...more photos!

More photos will come soon. We haven't taken care of the green slime just yet. I have borrowed a pressure washer and am waiting until tomorrow or the day after to use it to wash out my garage. My friend with a V6 Mustang borrowed most of my tools and will give them back tomorrow. As soon as I bleach out the Ford cooties from those tools, I'll carry on with the ridiculous amount of work and no space in which to do it. Pics soon!

I'm looking forward to the Turbo on the L67!!! Now that'* going to be awesome to see! About the chocolate covered raisins, I myself have lost things under the hood, except mine happens to be my favorite knife! I don't know where it went, but it'* gone.
