First thing to mention - this might take a while and already has! Been 2 weeks & the motor is still not out given my schedule... this weekend could be big progress though!
Started out with a ticking noise when I picked up my newest GTP a 99 Coupe. The iterations began:
Figured LIM gaskets (gummed up lifters) - did whole job, fired up still ticking
Figured Lifters - did whole job, fired up still ticking
Figured Injectors - replaced 2 that seemed to be noisy?? Still ticking
Got a 2nd opinion from a mechanic & he thought internal damage.
I have nearly zero free time in my life, demanding job, school & 4 kids
Based on me being super cheap with cars I decided to tackle the swap myself. I have never swapped a motor, most I have done is the LIM gaskets & replacing a head on a Honduh.
Old motor out
Swap top end parts to new motor
New motor in
