    How so? I'm definitely one of the top abusers of this skid plate so just wondering how that works

    Big thanks to John for making such a beefy skidplate. I hit some train tracks in downtown slc going about 40 today and the airbag deployed because of how hard I hit them but my pan was safe. Put a big ass dent right Behind the support bar but it was really a hell of a hit. Glad I had this plate on and not another red 46 because my pan would definitely be a goner.

    NICE!

    The question was all ready answered (Thanks Guys)
    The only thing welded to the car are the stubs, that the hoop is bolted to. They are welded directly to the frame rails and are only about 1.5" tall. So no interference what so ever.

    I don't see how it wouldn't work with the tools you have. Think it's just some size 10 nuts and bolts and some use a small Allen key. Not 100% sure on the sizes but they're basic tools. Once it's been installed it probably can be removed and mounted in 5 minutes depending on how fast you are. You can drop the the engine that way just remember that you're going to have to get your car up HIGH. Are you switching to a different engine or just refreshing this one? Because different motors have different plates.

    Just a mega refresh so I'd rather tear it down outside of the car and have some time to clean up the bay itself. Plus always wanted a picture of me in the engine bay :p. It's mostly for the experience and is kind of why I bought the car: to tinker with cuz not my DD

    But yeah. A rentable garage just opened up down the block from me so I'm planning on putting my e30 away once it get gross out and plan on scrubbing her down and giving her some love. I'm also convinced the PO put a lightweight flywheel in because the tranny chatter is unreal in neutral.

    The middle was actually touching the pan, it had rubbed off the black powder coating where the fins of the oil pan were touching the plate. I was almost the 3rd person to break a pan through this thing. I had no other choice really

Idk what approach I will take (going to have the engine/tranny out) but I want to make sure this skid plate works with the tools I have assuming I install it before the overhaul (makes no sense to do this but sometimes I'm lazy)
