Default The 96 impala

About 4 years ago me and my brother decided to buy a 1996 impala ss. I took my car to a local shop to get the exhaust leak fixed on the pass side of the car. Come to find out the idiot over tighted the bolt and the bolt snapped off in the heads. Friday i decided to tear the motor apart so i can pull the bolt out.


click on picture for video





I decided to clean and prep the intake for paint

Now we are waiting for parts to come in so we can put the cr back together

That looks familiar, just finished mine also. I had two broken bolts to deal with. Fun project... Hope all goes well for you.
