Or maybe drills holes through it top to bottom. Be careful not to push right through the firewall or aircon box tho. Cover everything with a sheet so metal debris doesn't get in the engine.

An air chisel might work...but you'd want something between the air con box and heat shield to not hurt the air box. Maybe a pack of cheap wood shims from the Home Depot etc. If you could cut it in half, it might come out.

I've read aftermarket engine mounts will raise the engine a tad. I had a pair of HR engine mounts on my car and they were so hard with the engine running the vibration would almost rattle my fillings loose. Went back to an over the counter pair of stockers and used an RJC engine brace. Engine mounts can be changed with the engine in. I've done it.

Judging by what Matt does with a junk yard 5.3 it'll run bottom 10's without even trying. I can't remember what convertors he uses.

Phil, I had several sets of tall rocker covers on my engine before I finally removed the heat shield. I had to roll the engine over to get the rear rockers in the right position to get the rocker cover off. Pointing my heat gun at the AC box after driving the car for awhile tells me it doesn't do dick.

Is it just that one screw holding that shield in there?

I honestly can't remember. I tried to get one out with the engine in and it was a no go.

I'd be removing that heat shield from the PS firewall.

Remember what I told you about that heat shield. Roll the engine around...the rear rockers could be up. It might come off if they're down. I'm not sure if the transmission mount will help. You're gonna blow through that convertor.

Phil, what torque convertor did you finally go with?

Have the cage certified for 8's. I know what you're capable of.
