Nice build. I love that Saleen extreme hood.
Thanks man! Was well worth it. One of my favorite features on the car.
First things first, the car went up in the air on stands. Removed the hood, supercharger, intake manifold, drained fluids, etc.
Then the car was pushed outside and placed on stands again. And the motor was pulled.
Won't lie, it was scary seeing it that empty. I felt crazy for pulling a perfectly fine 8x000 mile motor. Motor with my buddy Mike who helped me out through this project.
Pulled timing cover, valve covers, stripped it essentially. Ohhhh beautiful.
Removed the cylinder heads/cams.
Then soaked the heads in lacquer thinner and WD-40 and scrubbed them with a brass brush.
And after, all clean!!
Then the shortblock would be cleaned up, oiled, and stored.
And this came too!
Now it's time to fly to Newark. Yay...
