Pulled my motor today.

Well.. Took the motor out today getting ready for a 3.4. I still have to find one and put the funds together to actually get it. A few questions if anyone happens to know the answers.

I am still going to use the 2.5 tranny, Do I use the 2.5 fly wheel and a 2.5 upgraded sachs clutch?

I need a passanger side fuel rail if anyone has one and I also need a oil dipstick. These were casualties of pulling the motor.

There is alot of talk about dropping the new motor down 3/4 of a inch and or C2 mounts? Anyone have photos or have done this yet..

I just want to get all my facts together before I get going.

Thanks
J

How was it to drop? A pita or just a bunch of time?
Any pictures you would like to share would be welcome.

It was out in about one hour. Really easy to do.. I have pulled many different motors.. This was cake. It is heavy as a mofo though. I used a motorcycle jack. You have to lift the car really high to slide it out. I wound up taking it off the motorcycle jack under the car and dragged it out. I do not recommend trying to drag this thing by yourself. I will take more photos on monday with some good detail and captions.

I have an extra fuel rail assembly from a 2.5 if you are still looking.
All your other questions have been answered previously on Renntech.

Also it is much easier to remove the AC compressor from the motor rather than separate the lines from the chassis and then have to purge and recharge the entire system.

Thanks for the info... your write up was/will be helpful. Cant the 3.4 be ran with out the butterflies? Just a thought. Also, y do we need the C2 mounts? Does it drop the tranny half lower also? And I would love to pick up the rails from you, I caught mine on something on the way out. Thanks again..

If by the butterfly you mean the dual plenum intake, you can run it without. Early tests on engine swaps using the single plenum 986 manifold demonstrated you will produce about the same hp as a 2.5L and I have no idea why you would not use the 996 intake plenum. You would also have a continuous CEL if you run the 996 DME program without the secondary plenum solenoid installed.

The C2 mounts are needed at the trans end to lower the rear by about the same as the front otherwise the engine assembly will be angled down front to rear.
