    I am installing a 4v motor with the cooling mod into my 2004 GT. I think I cracked it installed the motor so now I need to change it can someone tell me how to do that? Tried to get to it by removing drivers side valve cover and that was a pain and didn't work. Thanks for any help.

    You're talking about on the back of the head right? I read you need to pull the trans to access it and is why I never did the mod.

    Ok so pulling the tranny is what I have to deal with? Jesus have mercy. That is the only thing with these motors is something that is possibly simple on the old 302 motors is a major pain on these motors. Aka removing the drivers side valve cover. Crap if I knew I would have to pull that sum beach I definitely would not have fooled with DS valve cover. Thank you for the assist.

    Which coolant mod do you have? The one that goes in the back of the head or the one that goes in the top?

    I don't think there is anyway you can get to that without dropping the tranny.

    I think you idea is dead on just hate that thought but guess I need to put the big boy pants on man up and get it done so I can finish my 4v swap. Will post an article of what I done as well as the ins and outs of my build.
