    Any reasons why to you are doing that out of morbid curiosity? One would be to get the AC system professionally discharged before remove any parts. I think the heater core needs to be in place for the coolant system to operate properly, but could be wrong. prety much all I can think of.

    Ahh I get ya. I think most of it is pretty easy to remove, You will have to get under the dash (though presuming that is also coming out for custom fab work) to get the condenser, fan and heater core out.

    One thing I may suggest is to not block off the heater outlets fully on the water pump, but route the hose between them to create a loop to keep from creating an over heat situation, it has to do with the way the t-stat works I think. I'm by no means an expert, just what my common sense tells me.

    allright so everything is out! really easy! dash doesnt need to come out only the glove box and the panel underneath by the passenger foot area. had to cut one of the heater lines that ran to the heater core from the water pump and the control line from the temp dial back to the heat/a/c unit under the dash in order to remove them. Probably could have not had to go that route but wasnt looking to go too crazy dismantling parts. Some hard to reach screws on the box extending from the firewall that hold the a/c lines and a little bit of muscle to pull the core and evaporator free but other than that like i said pretty easy

    As for the water pump send and return i cut sown one of the send/recieve hoses from the heater core to water pump that had almost a 180 in it already. I just looped the send to the recieve and it worked great! no leaks with or without pressure in the system all in all id say i shaved a good 40-50 pounds out with everything i removed from the car. a lot of stuff got removed.
