    Question Removing Engine / Transmission

    Can anyone speak from experience on this? I'm curioius if they can be removed together or if they need to be separated first?

    What about for the 93-97 models?

    If you remove them from underneath by dropping the k-member, you can do them both together. It can be done from above, but expect a lot more work.

    Doing it from the top you'll need to drop the tranny.

    reason why you'll need a lift to get it high enough to clear the K-member and a engine lift to get it that high


    Most do like Walt said, drop it the with the K-member and go underneath.

    When you say "from underneath", I'm assuming you're talking about using a lift to lift the car off the engine & trans, yes?

    Yes, but there have been some that have lifted the car without using a lift.


    From what I remember you need to disconnect all the grounds and wire harness, loosen the transmission cross-member, the K member (eat your spinach, they are on real tight) remove the ORY then lift the car up.



    You need to talk with Jeremy - ls1camino


    He can help you on what is the best way. He's able to tear them down very fast.
