Pulling the intake

Postby Killtodie » Sun Aug 02, 2015 1:26 am

On the scale of 0-10 where 10 is removing the engine, how hard is it to remove the intake with the engine in the car on the ST165?

I have never done it on the alltrac, but I did do it on a sw20 mr2 (replaced the HG while leaving the block in the car) and it was still pretty rough. The good thing about the mr2 setup is that you can atleast sit in the trunk while working on the motor. As for the 165 I think you can pull it off though. Its just like anything else on these cars, its gonna be difficult. I know some will prob suggest to just pull the motor/trans which is what I would do but you prob would have done that already if you wanted to go that route.

The stays (brackets?) on the firewall side are a pain, an Autozone flex head ratcheting wrench worked best.
I replaced the bolts for the timing belt tension'er with a stud kit from 2sRus.

Can anything be reached from the bottom of the car?

The supports can say attached at the bottom.
Forgot earlier, also the "other HFH", I cut the old one and used a new one.
