I plan on using archies kit to aid my install. My question is, What in the engine compartment can be removed, or must be removed. I am looking to gut everything and paint the area, then reinstall all components(wiring/hoses/bracketry/etc). The less I have to put back in, the better.
Thanks,
Kurt

I am not going with the elcetric waterpump, I will go with the standard style, and make a cover within the wheel well.

You may have to modify the right side wheel well to accomodate the water pump and/or drive.
You might have to cut the right side hood hinge mount for valve cover clearance.

I removed everything except what was needed.
They are:
The Harness
The vacuum line for the brake booster
The coolant hoses
The small harness to the fuel tank/pump
The Fuel pump relay (and A/C relay)

I used the double sided insulation from Jegs to cover my firewall.
Here's the thread with some pics:

All of the original intake ducting, canister can go. Also the dogbone mount on the rear trunk wall. I used the belt wp in mine. only slight modification to that side frame rail.Battery box (i put in trunk). The metal plate on the inside of deck lid (gives ya 1/4" or so more clearance). The rear fan/cooling tubes and all the insulation.

my engine compartment is Bare Bones, the ONLY thing that is still there that dosent NEED to be, is the Stock UN-used battery tray, but thats comming out too (the car is all apart now)
its amazing at how much Room there is when its all cleaned out, even my 350 looks like it has room to Grow, it looks like it belongs there, not crammed in at all
it looks like a empty old 70's full size Chevy pick up engine compartment, plenty of room to work

Yep, what all of the others said. Plus I pulled my aluminum tubing for the cold air from the "trunk" section.

Cleans up real well.

I pulled the aluminum cooling tubes, the leftover tubes from the recall, the battery tray, all of the unused brackets, and most of the insulation.
