Sly is correct. The 14mm bolt is left hand thread. also put the car in 3rd or 4th gear with the e brake on. big bar with a big helper.

Get a longer bar!!!
Seriously. That thing is really on there. You may need someone to sit in the car with the brakes on so the wheels won't turn also.
Been there, done that.

If the SVT forum comes up again, go to the '03 modifications section. There is a write up on the Metco Lower install there.

6 lb interchangeable system is on....now its belt time....I might have a messenger tonight with one...not sure if it will work with my 2.80 upper and billetflow idler/pulley wrap setup and 100mm and 92 mm idlers. We will see.

Thanks to Rick at Amazon for that tip!

I come across some of these mofo's that I can barely get off. Glad that little trick helped cause I know how hard some are to get off. There is a tool guy at nmra races and I bought a 5 foot breaker bar from him just to do this job. Got that sucker last year at bowling green. That and a 3 foot pipe gets it every time. hehehe
