well...just got something from fedex.....just another set of parts to add to my winters project....
 
Modmax Forged H-Beam Rods...
(actual pics to come soon)

 
aside from that, the motor is ready to come out...well...almost.  I have dsconnected and unbolted everything to yank the motor, except the 2 upper bellhousing bolts.  these are a BITCH!  After a good 4 hours of trying different methods, and "making" custom ghetto fabbed tools, the bolt heads are now stripped to the point where my bolt extracters just spin on them...YIKES!!  not to mention these are a MOFO to get to!!
 
Now, i have to somehow grind the heads off and hope the machine shop can get the studs out without hurting the block.  I hope it works!
 
My knuckes are bleeding lol.  My patience was tried on every level imaginable today. 
 
so, there is literally 2 freakin bolts left, then the motor can come out!!  2 bolts!!  ahhhh, i wanna scream just thinking about it.
 
more pictures and updates to come on page 9 of my site in a few days....as soon as i get this damn thing out!!

well, after another trying day, the motor is finally OUT of the car!  I may have sacrificed my bellhousing, but thats ok.  My buddy loaned me some toold from his shop to try the removal.  He gave me these really nice snap-on extracters.  i was able to get a good grip, and with tons of leverage....NOTHING!  I ended up breaking his extracters.  thats how freaking tight these were!  So out came the angle grinder, my last resort.  I was barely able to get the grinder in the tight spot, and grind the heads of the bolts off.  the motor broke free from the tranny almost instantly. 

wanna know the bitch about it all....once the motor was out, i grabe the broken bolts and unscrewed them with my fingers!!  Im guessing it was something to do with the aluminum bellhousing and the steel bolts, as is the bolts were actually fused to the housing.  few grind marks in the bellhousing...i dont think it will be an isse, but i will probobly grab a different one anyway.  whats a few more $$ in this money pit! ha ha.  I will be updating my page with all the progress and pics thus far in a few days (probobly this weekend).
