3800 Series 2 taken partially apart

Just a short video of my engine partially taken apart. I had to change the intake gasket. This was actually my first time tackling a job like this and it was actually really easy. So if you have a 3800 engine and need the lower gasket replaced do it yourself and don't pay the dealer. I was a total noob at it and pulled it off just fine =) While it was apart I went ahead and installed an Intercooler. I figure since its already apart an Intercooler would be easy to put in at this point =)

As for me, I know this engine is trashed. A new one will be arriving soon for the amount of $150 :)

Removing the engine on my 97 Riviera
Pulling the knocking 3800 supercharged out of my Riviera to make way for the replacement engine. Came out relatively easy thanks to the engine wiring for the most part is one harness that unplugs at the firewall. Everything is in that harness except the starter, alternator and speed sensor wiring. The AC compressor and power steering pump unbolt and can be left in the car so you don't have to drain the fluid/refrigerant. The biggest pain was getting the axis motor mount off, the bolts were pretty rusty. The ironic part is those bolts have to be removed to change the belts, which are so cracked and chipped I wouldn't doubt they are original. The old engine will either be used for parts, or I may rebuild it at some point.
