haha, that's a good follow-up. All told i think that two full days (8hrs a piece) probably covers it. I did it in much more spread out time periods than that, but a full weekend should suffice. Just make sure you can take out the o2 sensor without destroying it like it did. That added some time. I am currently trying to acquire the darn flange for my bov (a certain online store "forgot" to include it in my order). Then i will be complete. For the time being, it is driveable without the bov, which i am going to recirculate anyway. By the way i used jackstands as well, a lift woudl help out a whole bunch, but alas i am without access to one. Not for the novice either. The instructions with the kit that i received were definitely lacking as far as pictures and diagrams were concerned. Had to do a couple of things twice, etc.
It's called Kryoil or close to that. It stinks but is the only thing that will let you get that o2 sensor out without wrecking it.
OK so don't listen you other guys. Just remember to order the o2 sensor with the kit.
Slavearm= :D Master O2 Sensor Remover :D At least that is my story and I am sticking two it. Removed it thrice now, and still not throwing cels. I didn't realize it was a problem actually. I have always removed it while hot. Maybe that helps. Make sure you have good gloves. Ok im done braggin. Congrats on the self-install.
I started a thread like this a week ago. We got a few hits on it. I am waiting on my new motor. Dealer has had the car for 6 weeks and counting. I have the Greddy kit sitting in my room just waiting for the car
