Hey guys.

I am curious as to what I am supposed to do with all the left over vacuum, coolan, and electrical lines one my single is put on. second the motor is out right now and I am going to change the timing belt and the thermostat. Is there anything else to consider changing. Also I am trying to get the lower oil pan off but I can't seem to pull it off no matter what I do. Any suggestions on how to pull it off.

Thanks

PS I am at 58k miles.

The lower pan will have some marks on it when you can pry the two safety apart. You have to look for them and then clean up the extra gunk with a wire wheel. You will fingure out where to put the extra vacuum lines or where to hide them. It's all part of the mystery, Just look at other posts and what they have done. It's not hard to do and you can always ask specific questions along the way.

if your motor is out I would change the motor mounts as well. I didn't and they went bad shortly after... PITA to change with the engine in the car so now that I'm going single and I've got the twins off and the intake off I'm going to hold the engine up a bit with a lift and change the mounts. Save yourself the hassle and do them now.

Just plug or cap off whatever lines you don't need and put some tape on the electrical connectors to keep them clean.

Since you're at 58k miles you might as well do the whole 60k maintenance while everything is out.

Just make sure you the pan is sealed and isn't leaking before putting the motor back in. It is a PITA to try and get at the pan if it leaks following the re-install of the engine.

I am only at 58k miles and will not be running more then 600rwhp. I don't really see the need to do all that as a 60k miles service. The oil pan is back on and looking good.
