    Default z22se Engine Removal

    How hard would it be to remove my 722se engine without taking the gearbox out of the car as well.?

    or what is the easy way to remove the engine.

    i need to do my piston rings and mite was well do big end bearings etc..etc.. so to keep the inside if the engine clean as i have no garage that my car will fit it i though i could take the engine out of the car take it to my work space and then do the recon in there but whats the best way?

    In general I would say its easier to remove engine and box, as splitting engine and box in the car is normally a pain in the butt, however I'm not sure thats the case with the vectra so would wait for someone else to advise.

    take the engine out as a hole unit and strip it down some where clean and tidy , getting a 2.2 out isnt to bad its getting it in thats the problem lineing up can be a swine some bolts with there heads cut of some times help .also removal of the altonator / bottom crank pulley tenstioner and mounting and inlet and exhurst manifolds helps .............
