use the intake of the 257 as it does not have TGV's and is a one piece design.

hey hey guys. i was just going to pull the motor on the car would take the whole front end apart ie fenders grill bumper intercooler, frame supports and just unbolt the trany too and just slide everything out like that? of would you just unbolt the motor from the trany and just go straight up with it?

take hood off and remove engine and tranny as one piece. Dont over complicate the removal.

If I threw a rod (horrible knocking sound, low power), should I get a EJ257 short block? I've been wanting an excuse to go 2.5. Anything else I'll need to replace (besides getting a new turbo)? Tranny? Electrical? Has anyone posted a guide to swapping the short block? I figure I'm capable, and I have a neighbor who knows quite a bit about cars. Anyone actually done the hybrid swap?

Instead of resurrecting a dead thread....try searching/looking around in the engine section of the forum or clyinder head/shortblock section.
