    Blackbirdracing Blows up another ECOTEC

    Well Today I helped BBR Tear apart the solstice and Remove the Lnf that let go. Took some photos but spent more time wrenching and trying to figure out the magical tricks to remove it. I will let him explain more on the details... im just here to post the photos

    Hood Removed getting ready for teardown.


    Engine cover Intake Lid Removed


    Full air box and cold side intercooler pipes removed


    Travis with a smile while working on the car


    Fender liners Removed for easy access




    Travis (BBR) under car trying to figure out how to remove the air dam on the car


    Tiny turbo


    cowl and wipers removed and hidden optima


    Hmmm whats that hole down there


    Hood staring at you


    More parts coming off


    Radiator a/c condenser removed


    Holy crap..... Look what we found





    Removing the last of the harness and bits and pieces to pull engine


    holy crap Engine is out


    Engine and trans on engine lift


    I think its broken



    Hey wait....is that supposed to be outside the engine...(Found on A/C compressor) Next to large hole in the block.

    That blows, but seeing those pictures and how that is shoehorned into the engine bay makes me lean towards an LS1 Trans Am when I sell my bike. Still love the Solstice though That GenIII might help fend off future issues. Not a bad price either.
