    I'm pulling the M5R2 in my 94 - what else should I be doing? (SPEND MY MONEY!)

    Going to be pulling the tranny in my '94 at some point. The car is basically bone stock with 60k on the clock (Though some of those miles were at Pocono Raceway and I was NOT gentle on the clutch!) I think the slave is leaking, so while I'm in there, going to do a clutch (Up in the air between just a basic OEM level replacement vs a spec 1 - prefer a stock feel and it's not getting any performance enhancements.)

    So what else should I be doing? Throw out bearing, slave (Obviously. . .) If the rear main seal is dry, will probably leave it be. What else is good to do while the tranny is down? Would like to have all the parts I can available as I might be renting a lift from a friend for a day or two.

    Good point, but did it MANY years ago when you could actually get them. One of the best upgrades!

    I have to pull the fuel tank? That reminds me - I have a custom dual exhaust. That's suddenly going to make this job more of a pain in the ~~~ I bet.

    I do have a fuel pump I bought years ago and never put in. Still sitting on the shelf. Believe it's a mustang pump or something? I forget.

    U joints - good call.

    How old is the starter?

    Is there a bushing in the rear of the crank?

    Do you have a clutch alignment tool?

    Have you already replaced the trans & crossmember mounts?
