After winter because you have no reason to rush if you aren't even going to drive it.

I don't know anything about anything, but if it doesn't matter which time you do it, I'd personally rather just get it over with now.

It begins

so started pulling the old motor out Friday

My buddy posing with the old motor after we got it out

Then i took a long road trip to meet Markus and pick up the motor out in western NY left at 6am didn't get back till 8pm but it was well worth it
and the last of the pics i got was the new one going in
The motor is in and everything all bolted up now i just need to put on the alternator,a/c compressor,tensioner and a few random plugs and ill be ready to start this bitch up and i would also like to thank Nate and Zack for coming down to my house to help me with the swap and im sorry i don't have more pics but it was a long weekend and taking pics was the last thing on my mind.

Hey Caboose nice engine. One thing I recommend is wire tucking. I neglected that issue on my engine bay so now I am resolving it. And I'll tell you the bay looks sooooooo much better. Oh and please no blue wire loom.
