Anything interesting about the replacement of the motor? I would think it is pretty much plug it in and go. And I hate all the little plugs they have come up with seems they take a different trick to get the buggers loose.
Nope, my stock motor was fine. I just wanted to turn up the boost and have better peace of mind with a forged motor vs stock. I had a good year financially and this one popped up just as I started looking. Replacement was easy. Just stuff to remove to get it ready to pull was the hardest. Pull old out, put new in and plug things back in.
