    Well did some work today to try and get the car to a point where I can start sanding it down and prepping it for the primer/sealer.

    -A/C completely removed
    -power distribution block harness removed
    -PCM removed
    -brake booster and master cylinder removed
    -cabin filter housing removed
    -wiper motor and arm assembly removed
    -windshield washer bottle and lines removed
    -dash removed

    Some pics of the engine bay (BB shots at night so they are not the greatest). Need to vacuum it out and wash it down. Also still need to disconnect the power steering lines and reservoir. I don't think I'm going to mess with disconnecting the brake lines and ABS control unit. I'll end up just masking them off when I paint. I also don't think I've going to remove the lower section of insulation. I'll most likely fold it back to paint what I can behind it. As to remove it I would have to disconnect brake lines and fuel lines, which I really don't want to do.

    wow, personally I would never switch paint colors just because of the engine bay. are you going to go show-ey and smooth out the engine bay before painting?

    now you've talked quite a bit on the power bit of the equation, but I don't recall anything about the trans? anything special your doing in that department?

    Cleaning out the engine bay isn't too bad. I needed to do it anyway so that I can reroute the harness to wire tuck it. My engine bay will look very clean when everything is said and done.

    As for the trans I've completed all of the standard upgrades. Forks, diff, shift tower, clutch. I've sent requests to TH to see what he thought/recommended, but he's never responded back. Bottom-line short of installing a new gear set from Quaife (~$2800) there really isn't anything more I could do that I know of. I will be rebuilding it before I put it back in though.
