      on the powersteering, if you haven't drained it already don't. all you need to do is support the engine on a jack and remove the engine mount. then just unbolt the ps pump from the engine and swing off to the side. this way you don't need to worry about opening that up and having to refill it.

      on the buzuiki plates, pm him or look at his profile. there is a link to where you can buy a set from him.

      to port the heads you bolt the plates to the engine. this is your guide to how far to open up the heads. Then you seal the plates to the heads before you install the LIM, etc.

      as for porting the heads, aircougar uses a drill and some sort or bit, I can't recall the name right now, you can get them on ebay. pm him about it. or you can use a dremel but it will take way longer then anything else.

      when you go to port the heads stuff paper towel down the ports and cover everything in grease on top of that. Also have a second person handle with a vacuum and this should take care of just about all the metal shavings. when your done turn the engine over and vacuum and blow out the ports with compressed air to make sure you got everything.


      dont' forget that you reuse your engines front cover and crank damper. you will also be reusing the valve covers, etc.

      another hint. wait to install the water cross over tube. This will give you alittle more room to drop the engine in with the A/C compressor zip ties to the car.


      the safe way to empty the ac system, have a shop "recapture" the r-134a ...

          Too late with that one. I drained it - that shiz was black, smelled bad too like it was really burned up.

          I just looked at the link from 95pgt-t and I actually have that same bit and a couple more different ones, so that is good to go.

                I will post the pics of things powder coated and painted. I will be re-spraying the engine bay with primer, body color, and clear to clean that up. The block and trans will get a color, just not sure what yet. All brackets and mounts will be silver or chrome. That is all I have planned as of now. I was thinking dark blue, silver, or body color for the block and trans......

                  Another porting suggestion.

                  Remove the 3L cams and put the 3L valve covers back on before porting. This will ensure that all the valves are closed. If cams are left in, some of the intake and exhaust valves will be partially open due to the cam lobes. Even with plugging them and grease I would worry a bit. Hell, I would actually remove cams, and still use paper towel and grease + a vac.

                  Stuff some paper towel or shop rags in spark plug tubes and anywhere else you don't want metal shavings. When I did it, aluminum dust was EVERYWHERE!!!

                    that is a good idea, but because he isn't swapping cams and doesn't want to get into the engine I don't think its the best idea here.

                    definately make sure the engine is sealed up when you port it.

                      Hey Blu, I am actually just about done with this same project! A 95 SE with 3.0L. I was just about to post a bunch of pics of the progress and mods. I had previously converted to an SVT engine, so my path is a bit different in that I already have a later model top feed rail and SVT induction, cam etc. I am very conversant in the 95 vacuum secondary and OBD1 issues, as well as solutions for the bad wiring found on most 95s.

                      I am going without secondaries in the intial build, but I do have an SVT LIM converted to vacuum. (I've done this twice).

                      Mone is a ported 3.0L with SVT cams. I'll be posting shortly....no pretty powder coating though....only have money for go fast stuff right now.

                      PS: Beautiful asthetics....keep it up on the 3L!

                        I'm going to make a new post for you with all the links I've collected while searching throughout my 3l build. Oh, and buy the 3-pack of bugzuki plates. You can use one bolted down as a template and save the other two for the finish install.

                          i would suggest removing the heads for the porting , since you already have to change the mount , the cost of a couple head gaskets and head bolts is worth the piece of mind of knowing there is no metal shavings in the engine, much easier to port the heads on a bench anyway

                          p.s. dont forget the exhaust ports

                            Sounds like you just need to come over here and finish my build! So hurry up, I don't want to do this any more!

                            I have been persuaded to tear the 3L down and change out the bearings and get everything lubed and cleaned up. I would hate to try to start this thing not knowing if the cylinder walls were rusted up I will be removing the heads (not that I want to) to do the porting. Like stated earlier, it will only cost a couple extra $ for the gaskets and bolts.
                            I have ordered the 3 bugzookie plates, and those are super cheap for having the peace of mind knowing you won't have a chunk of JB weld falling into your engine.


                            I really wish this was over already as I have so many things to do owning a home, getting married, powder coating, broken car, and doing my remodeling. It always seems like something comes up when I have the ambition to work on the car.....

                            Thanks again for the tips guys [voice=Will Ferrel]I like you but you're crazy[/voice]

                            P.S. Am I supposed to use my 2.5L injectors or the 3L ones?

                              if the engine is an 05 and was just pulled there will be no rust in the engine, more so if it was stored correctly.


                              there is no need to remove the heads. take your time and keep everything clean. we have done a number of ported 3L now the way I discribed with no problems at all.

                              to install the motor mount just grind it down. It will slip in between the heads, but first you need to install the oil seperator between the heads.

                              No need to rpelace the bearing on such a low milage engine either. just once everything over when you swap oil pans.

                              you want to use your injectors. although if you can upgrade to SVT injectors as that is better for the 3L then the stock 17# injectors. You will need a tune in the end anyway. plus the spray pattern of the 3L injectors is wrong for a split port application.

                              If you want to keep the costs down don't worry about the bearings and port the heads on the engine. this way you also don't have to worry about re-timing the engine as you indicated you didn't want to mess with that much before at SZ.

                                or you can spend a few hours grinding down the mount to fit between the heads for free ...
