Are you sure that was necessary? Mine popped right out with a screwdriver. Getting that inside collar out was the real fun part

After I burned the rubber, the innards basically just fell out. Then a hacksaw was necessary to split the sleeve, then a chisel to collapse and remove. Sounds like a lot of work, but really only about 20 minutes. Now the first one did take considerably longer... then I decided to listen to what others had posted. A ton of smart dudes reside at this site.

Expectations High... But Yet Untested

Nah not a Lindsey. A local indie sort of... Fl. Autosport (Broadfoot). The install is part of a major maintenance/upgrade project. Slow going since I only have a couple hours on the weekends to dedicate to it. Haven't started the motor yet after the install. Still have my polished intake to install. Will let you know though.

Cool

Pulled the heads off a 97 Buick 3.8, what's this have to do with the 944 you might ask ? Well I used the $ I charged to get my rims and tires for the old girl!

Broke the driver side door handle. (damn it!!!). Spring seem fine so not sure whether i can remove handle as per Clarks or whether i have to go from inside. I suspect my 91 S2 has electric locks.

Walked passed it in the garage. I'm currently suffering from low mileage jitters. The old girl is pushing 50,000 miles at 47,500 and I 'm dying inside thinking about going over it.
