Oil filter housing if you intend to add an oil cooler.

HAHAHHAHAHA... have fun with the s54 dipstick tube, and the coolant hard pipe...

FCUK my life, and the hour and a half or fcuking with that damn dipstick tube

when the motor comes out, It's getting converted to OBD1, euro expansion tank setup, euro oil filter housing, and AN power steering reservoir

Why? There is tuning for OBDII now.

Just to clean up all the bullshit mess under the M50 manifold, delete the SAP and all associated emissions crap, etc etc...

How would they know if you deleted the SAP ? a little sim hidden away and you should be fine.

I doubt they are that familiar with the car..?

I'm no tuning expert but I would think all the emissions stuff can be flashed out of the ecu. Them simply remove it and no CEL. I'm not sure you would be able to pass emissions though... at least not legally. In Atlanta they have plug in emissions testing but if you... ahem know the right people... you can pass so long as you don't have a CEL on.

aside from Active Autowerke making a sim you can buy, I think some ECU flashes disregard it


aside from you that, you can make your own sim

Yes I made my own sim a while back. If was going to get a tune though I would just have them flash it out while they were in there along with the post cat O2 sensors amongst other things.

Wait I'm a little unclear, why do you want it if you don't need it?

Soo Jay came over after Eurofest with some friends and then Neel stopped by and with their help we were able to get the front clip pulled off my car prepping to pull the motor this week. Wasn't as bad as some people have made it seem, and I'm definitely glad I did it as it gives me a lot more room to work with and will make things much easier.



At this point, I'm at a total stand still and have no idea which way to go. Adding up what I *should* be doing while I have the motor up in my head, not to mention all this work, it's making me really mad that I'm not just going with an LS1 like I've always wanted. I just know that I'm not financially ready for that project right now, and even though I have all the time in the world, it still probably would not be finished for this season and would sit for the next year (minimum). I just don't see doing all this work and still wanting to go through this all over again this fall.

That being said, assuming I stick with the S52, I'm wondering what I should do while it's out:

-I have an S54 pan and pump that I picked up, but after hearing what Cal went through and the long list of parts needed to make it work, I'm strongly debating just going with a VAC baffle. Definitely seems like the cheaper/easier way to go, and fits my budget better. VAC or S54?

-I had to discharge my A/C while doing all this, and pulling it out altogether would certainly lighten up the front end and give me more room to work with, not to mention not having to worry about recharging it again after this is all done. Pull it or keep it?

-SAP. How much was the AA SAP delete Jay? Is it pretty simple to make your own SIM? This really interests me, but I've never done any research on it. If so, I'd probably want to get a cheap set of shorty headers while the motor is out. Do you delete any of the vacuum lines that run from under the M50 mani to the SAP actuator or?

-If I delete the SAP and make room on that side, would it be worth it to do the Euro expansion tank while everything is apart? Rob, you said you got away with not bending your hardline? Guess I should look into how much they go for...

-Other things I should probably do while the motor is out: Stewart Water Pump, new belts and tensioners. ??

-Found some oil sitting on the bottom of my throttle body, so I'm assuming I'm going to need to look into a new/different PCV or oil separator.

-When pulling the motor, can I just quick disconnect the wiring harness anywhere, or do I have to unplug all the individual sensors? Really don't feel like messing with the M50 manifold kit...

All I can think of off the top of my head right now, just a whole lot on my mind while I was doing it so I'm trying to get it all down. Definitely the biggest project I've done on this car to date.
