Did a little wrenching on the car today

Well, I did a little wrenching on the car today. It took about 2 hours to get the blower and lower intake off the car. Which reminds, me I need to get a couple pics of the lower intake as well...once I find where I Set it. lol

Thanks to Louis for swinging by out of the blue and lending a hand getting things off. I look forward to the new blower getting here...I can't wait.

Here is how it sits at this point....

I heard it was 1000hp if you get the kind from Kenya. They also rev higher too.

Re: Did a little wrenching on the car today

I have 3 options I am considering. It all depends on what is for sale when I get my taxes in. I listed this thing for sale now figuring it wouldn't sell for a couple weeks, but it sold in less than one day. It was nuts. But, it's off the car and I just need a box to ship it out in.

Re: Did a little wrenching on the car today

The install I'll get more pics of. I'll probably re-use the write up I used for removal as the removal portion of it. I have a PM out to the original author anyhow.

I was going to do detailed pics and everything when taking it apart, but, it was too damn cold. Only took about 2 hours to remove those, must have been the cold weather motivator.

The right tools...that's the key phrase right there.

It's funny tho, the last time I helped take an eaton off my car, I was the onlooker mostly, and just lent a hand when needed, it took about 5 hours to get it off the car....it was in a shop too with all the right tools. lol

Re: Did a little wrenching on the car today

the best tool to have is a good set of hands. I guess the first time that tool was left in the box

Re: Did a little wrenching on the car today

If you don't do the write up I'll make sure and detail mine. Hell...we can combine pictures of both and get a really good, detailed article.

I plan on also detailing idler pulley swaps and lower pulley setups as well as a few other things.

Someone needs to just hang around our garages with a camera to take pictures for articles....you up for hiring Brent? lol

BTW, put an oil seperator on there Rob...

Re: Did a little wrenching on the car today

Um, I already have 2 JLT PCV dumaflatchies on there....

When I did the swap the first time, I had about 1/2 qt of oil in the lower intake. This time around I have 0 oil...the only thing that ended up in the lower intake was coolant as we pulled the blower off after pulling out the IC manifold thingy.

Re: Did a little wrenching on the car today

Must be left-over oil from before then. I'm hoping mine doesn't even look that bad...

Re: Did a little wrenching on the car today

Are you talking about on the IC? If you are, yeah, I never cleaned it when I did the swap last time. I am getting it sonic cleaned this time around before the new blower goes on.

If you're talking about any moisture in the valley, it is due to IC coolant.

For comparison, here is how the IC looked the last time it came out...this pic shows the same side that is visible in the pic above.

Re: Did a little wrenching on the car today

How would you go about cleaning it or "sonic" cleaning it as you put it?

To sonic clean:

D'Agostino Racing Intercooler Sonic Cleaning [DRI-INTF] - $125.00 : Performance Parts - Ford Mustang - Cobra - Dodge Viper - Chevy Corvette - C6 - LS1

If you want to try cleaning it yourself, you need to get an aluminum friendly degreaser that won't eat away at the epoxy sealant either...I didn't feel like searching for such a product so I am sonic cleaning mine...this way it will be fresh inside and out.

Re: Did a little wrenching on the car today

They weigh 7.4 pounds.....so...figure 10 bucks each way?

Or, you could order a brand new one from amazon racing for about $575 shipped...it's not OEM which is around $800-1000 for some lame reason.

And for reference...the eaton alone weighed 34.4 pounds.

I've got the perfect box for shipping an eaton too.......

It seems the whipple box will fit an eaton quite nicely.

Um...you'd only need to send the IC...so you wouldn't need your "friends" whipple box to ship out just the IC....
