Uh, yeah, I'd say it looks a bit different. Let me know if you decide to get rid of any good stuff.

4 hours to pull the engine? It would take me longer than that just to gather my tools.

Mike, Nice work similar to what I do when parting the cars but without the saw.

Mike -

Damn dude...if a 951 pit crew chief was ever needed........ are you planning on any extra heat shielding while you have the motor out?

That is effing hot. I should have taken my engine out that way. Travis are you reading this out there?

Hehe this looks pretty cool.
But in the end, if you're going to disassemble everything, I can't see that this would go faster than removing some of the parts while still on the car?

This goes 10x faster than removing parts while on the car. In the interest of saving even more time, you should leave the torque tube connected at both ends. Lower the whole powertrain as one piece. I did my 86 this way when I ripped it apart, and it took me about 5 hours to get the entire thing on the ground, and another 20 minutes to get the car off of it. Then every bolt you want to turn is really easy to reach, even those ugly ones ontop of the torque tube

If I had a lift, I would've left the torque tube attached and just pulled out the two center braces. That knocks probably an hour or two of the job, but then you have the issue of getting the body up in the air high enough to move/disassemble the drivetrain. As for heat shielding, yes, I'll be replacing the factory heat shielding, along with working with the brake booster shield and a few other things. I'll be sure to post updates as I work

reminds me when rage2 and his buddies dropped the engine/torque tube/rear suspension on a car - basically lifted the body off.

Great pics, keep them coming and good luck, looks like a heavy undertaking but that's what makes it fun.

Ok, didnt get THAT much done today, and was busy stripping down a GC8 STi yesterday. Actually decided to get some sleep and my back was bothering me. Anyway, here's today's progress:



Spec Stage 3k and stock flywheel


Engine with the crossover pipe of doom.


Another look at the current mess.


On the stand, waiting on me to pull the accessories and headers off. I also started pulling apart the front suspension today, but doubt I'll get back to that till late tomorrow or Monday.

You pictures have inspired travis and I to take an engine out like you did, just because it looks cool. Honestly.

As for progress today, we got the transmission out of the Austin Healey (UHHHHHHHHHHHHHHG) It was so not meant to fit in that car, and we ended up standing in the car and walking it out from inside. Stripped down the Porsche engine to the long block with the turbo still sitting on it. Finally finished pulling the torque tube out, which is surprisingly lighter than it looks. Stripped down the front suspension (just need to pull the coil-overs and wheels off the hubs). I REALLY need to go buy a parts washer, I always used to just do stuff with brake clean, but I'm beyond that now, need to do it correctly (and it was getting expensive). The car itself has the brake booster, some wiring, dashboard, hatch, and doors still left on it, and is sitting on a pair of mover's dollies. Gonna start stripping down the rear suspension tomorrow and finish taking the waterpump/pullies off the engine.



Torque Tube awaits new bearings and delrin inserts.


Intake and fuel rail, I like the Lindsey rail because it's well made and does the job, and I can take it off with the intake. However the anodizing sucks on it, probably going to fix that this winter.


Getting there....


Crossover pipe, stock headers, the bane of my existance.


All done for today.

Holy smokes Mike - you're not screwing around. What all are you planning on fixing/replacing?

Apparently, Chris White has been powdercoating the Lindsey fuel rails and it holds up a lot better. I bought a new one from jgporsche that he had powdercoated and it turned out very nice should hold up nice..

Your progress is shaming me to get my rear in gear on the racecar.
