alright well i started today on the deletes and it was more of a pain then i thought it was going to be ha.. i started at 12:30 and ended at 5 and i got the IM off, taken apart, and deleted the tgvs.. replace 2 out of the 4 spark plugs and got 2 new belts since mine were shot! of course there was a head of a bolt broken off on the water pump from someone who owned it before me but i got passed it by taking the alter off and just took the whole water pump off. so tomorrow all i got to do is put the IM back on.. ha hope it goes okay and hope the car runs! its crazy how much stuff you gotta take off just to get to the eight bolts that hold the IM on..

Holy shit... half that crap didn't need to come off (but you had to)... I told you it was a PITA. Did you mark the hoses ? Annnnnnnd do you have any tools left in your toolbox ? HA You are doing all the plugs I hope ?

nah i didnt lift it up, the only reason you got to lift it is remove the splash sheild to drain the coolent but all i did was put a rubber hose on the coolent drain off the radiator and fed it through the splash sheild and into a bucket
