How is everyone doing tonight?

@  scottydoggs98 : (09 July 2017 - 12:52 PM)

some of the 99 pcms will work take a 01 bin, those you can change the vin # ive found.

@  scottydoggs98 : (09 July 2017 - 12:50 PM)

the vin is kept in the pcm, you cant change the vin @ with dhp on 01 up cars, so if you use a the cars pcm with dhp it will retain the cars vin#. so if you flash a new bin to the pcm, its vin stays put.

i need a bin that will work with this vin: 1g4cu541914206781

ISS got shortened during install somehow and had to lengthen back to size.

@  Tobias05 : (22 June 2017 - 01:15 AM)

...if I am able to bolt down both ends with little resistance than I would imagine it is properly seated?

@  Tobias05 : (22 June 2017 - 01:14 AM)

Swapped rack and pinion, not sure if ISS is seated.

Going to be removing the subframe and lowering the engine to replace the PCS in the trans.  I do have a hoist but figured the support fixture in the photo would allow me to lower the driver side of the engine/trans assembly independently of the passenger side a bit easier.

 

On the pass side I will attach to the factory lift bracket near the firewall and the front dogbone mount.  On the drivers side I will attach to the dogbone mount in front, but not sure where to attach it in the rear.  Any suggestions?

Generally most people use two lift points total. Usually the rear lift bracket or alternator bracket and the drivers side dog bone.

you have two pull brackets, use them, one at the rear of the alt, one near the t stat.  hook your chains to them.

I use the factory lift brackets when pulling an engine with a hoist & leveler, but this fixture mounts straight across and thought it would benefit from using 4 points to spread the load evenly.

 

I'll give it a shot with the factory lift points, hope it works out.  Can always use my hoist if I have to, but wanted room under the car to pull the subframe and work under there.

your support will work with two points, or you need to take the alt egr, and coil bracket off to get to bolt holes.

See I removed all my factory lift  point stuff so it was a  little different, but I also did an EGR Delete so...I used the motor mounts, but did the  alternator bracket on the passenger side and straight to the head on the driverside

Mine was similar.  EGR deleted bolt holes on driver side and SC tensioner removed bolt holes on passenger side.  But, my engine support is not designed as in the one pictured above.  See pic below.
