In my opinion the better question is what a good machine shop would be for this job, that knows what they are doing and you don't have to specify to them how to clean what part.

Yes I did give the the whole head assembly. I think most people do that but maybe some others will chime in too.

If you had removed the MAF and air box before the drop, would it have cleared without removing the bumper?

3. It was then when we realized there wasn't enough clearance to pull it out below the bumper, so we opted to remove the bumper, and it (luckily) worked with just enough space to scrape by above the MAF with about 1/2" to

Yes, you could but the rubber elbow may still hit but you can exit out the muffler cut out.

Great post, thanks for documenting. Just wondering, are we all past the red fan stigma now? Haven't seen it mentioned. Personally I love the look but I know it evokes a certain... what's the word... "feeling" among our members! Great build!

To be honest I wasn't aware of any "red stigma", nor I care, but I always thought on these engines the fan is such a focal point that it had to be powder coated, and since the car is silver with a red interior I wanted to stick to that scheme.

Speaking of red, I also had the calipers rebuilt and did consider powder coating those also but IMO red calipers are really over done and ended up just leaving the yellow Zink finish.

I guess different tastes...

I agree with you about the fan. I opted for powder coating both fan and housing black. I just know the whole motormieser (spelling?) thing, those guys always did red fans and I've seen a lot of "opinions" on this forum about it. Personally, I like the red fan look. I also agree about the red calipers. Show us some pictures with the refinished zink coating!

This is not the right forum for the brakes, and I will do another thread about the rest of the work, since I rebuilt the entire chassis, but here is a picture that shows the rebuilt calipers done by Eric at PMB Performance.

They look new!
