The final stretch before the Mazda gets towed away, engine came out pretty fast since I did all the prep work earlier this week.
Engine out! Head will be removed and sent away for inspection before it gets bolted onto the rebuilt spare block I have.
Engine bay will get a quick scrub before the body shop does a proper clean and sand.
Every bolt that was removed has been bagged and tagged.
A friend hooked me up with these 31-pin Deutsch connectors, ordered new pins and extraction tool so just waiting for those to arrive. These will be used so I can quickly unplug the engine from the car.
