I was pulling my HF's 8v for the B7 swap and got bored so I decided to do a write-up for noobs to use. This is a pretty simple process and doesn't require a whole lot to do.

Materials:

Sockets (10-20 and a 32mm for the axles)
Ratchets
Wrenches
Hammer
Ball Joint Seperator
Jack
Jack Stands
Wire Cutters
Screwdriver
5/16 Punch (bitch pin removal)
Cherry Picker





Those are the basic tools you need. I have a few extras I use but they're not necessary in most cases. Now onto the swap. I took a combo of video and pics every so often so just about everything should be covered.

First get the car on jack stands. I also like to put my wheels under the sides of the car as extra protection in case anything falls. I also like having it up since it helps you avoid leaning over as much and getting a sore back.



Once the car is up. I remove the battery, battery tray, and intake piping. The battery requires a 10mm socket and the battery tray is a 10 and has 1 12mm iirc.

Once you have that done go ahead and unplug the wiring harness for the engine from the chassis harness at the strut towers.

This fuel feedline to the fuel rail is a 17mm.



I also forgot to mention to disconnect the fuel return line here.

After that is done I like to take care of everything underneath the car before pulling any coolant hoses. This includes unbolting the header, disconnecting the shift linkage, and removing the axles.

Once that is taken care of you can pull the axles. This only takes 2 bolts to do. One is the 32mm axle bolt and the other is the 17mm lower ball joint bolt.

Part 6

I usually position the floor jack right about here when I jack up the LCA. This helps to keep the ball joint from spinning when you go to unbolt it.



Part 7

Once the ball joint and axle nuts are removed, you can then pop the axles out.

Part 8

Once the axles are pulled you're done underneath the car. From here you can disconnect the vacumn and coolant lines.

Part 9

Once all of this is done, the engine should be out.

I swapped them all to links to the site instead of the embedded links.

I don't think I've ever had help with a swap. For some reason it seems I'm the guy w/ the tools everyone comes to when they need help, but as a general rule I prefer to work on my own.
