Looks like its coming out the bottom then :)
I guess i'll do the LSD at the same time, now I need to get bearings and seals for the tranny

does anyone know where I can order the shim kit from, or a part number if it has to come from ford.
I'm assuming I'm going to need one to do it right.
I'm probably forgetting something huge :)

Bringing back a dead thread, but do either of you know of a how to guide for removing the engine? I'm sure I can figure it out but it will save me a ton of time if I can read up on it a bit first

If your doing in your garage vs using a rack, get it up high w/ 4 jack stands, best to remove the hood & bumper cover....Use a big oil drip pan to lay the motor on & pull the pan out from underneath the car w/ the motor on it. What happened to your motor? Ran low on oil & took out the rod bearings I take it? Do a BSD plug when you redo it.....

I bought a knocking 2.3 ST with the intention of putting a 2.5 in it. But yeah I'm pretty sure that was the cause, oil starvation.

Do a bsd on the 23/25 motor...That'll help w/ mileage/hp + it'll take additional qtr of oil...
