Install G2G Saturday April 21st

So as you may of heard or already know from experience, the Duratecs are harder to drop than the Zetecs. We didn't want to rush and slap it back in and are going to take the time this week to clean and prep for installing this Saturday. Broncoboy will be back to lead the way...
C'mon out to help or hang out! Let me know and I'll put you on the list.
(13724 54th Drive SE, Everett)

Good luck with the install. I helped Josh drop his new Dtec motor in and it was pretty easy.

Yeah the install should go much smoother. When things havent been moved in a 100K miles it makes tough work getting them to budge.

We ordered a new clutch today and need to pick up some other items like header wrap, spark plugs, Dielectric grease... It will be excellent to have you, and your ST here as a reference for the wires, hoses and connections. FecalRocket will have his ST here but not until the afternoon. Thanks for coming up!

Just getting a clutch kit from autozone, probably be a LuK or Sach. I'll ask Michael(Broncoboy80) if he can think of any special tools.
