    I've also left the power steering and AC in the car to not have to deal with it. Easy opportunity to dump the PS pump out for a partial fluid change though.

    honestly I don't feel that having the engine out makes the motor mount job all that much easier. If you were doing lower control arm bushings, then yes. Access to the bolts is easy at that point. ...

    stock trans shifts about 4500 but you can manually hold first gear if you want to. No reason to, it doesn't make any power up that high.

    basically its one of those things that isn't a bad idea,...

    so they aren't uncut, kinda. They're partially cut. Apparently if you buy a replacement ignition cylinder, it comes cut on 1-4 and 6. If you have 5 and 7-10 cut to match the door, you now have a...

    consider a 2.26 with a 3 speed is pretty much the same as a 2.73 with an AOD in terms of RPM. You get much better acceleration from the 2.73 though, so in-town driving is probably more efficient...

    Whats the caster like side to side? Forget if it pulls towards the low or high side but either way it pulls. Often they set the caster split slightly to pull a smidge to the left to compensate for...

    honestly I don't really think you'd get much improvement out of multiport on the highway. Around town probably, those long runners make more torque down low.

    I guess the smart thing to do is just buy another cylinder to take apart, that way I know what I need, and if it all goes pear-shaped I haven't actually made the car not work.
