Label all the bolts as you pull them and take plenty of pictures. When I did mine I used some trays to keep the bolts from the LIM and UIM separate from each other and a few sheets of paper with labels of where other things came from.

Like iffy said, take notes and pictures. Make sure you have a foot pounds torque wrench at least, and an inch-pounds if you can get your hands on it.

I also used engine assembly lubricant when putting it all back together.

Have you watched the video floating around the Grand Prix boards that covers most of what you are doing? It's pretty useful IMO and will clear a lot of things up if you are uncertain before you get started.

use Zip Lock bags, great for labeling the small parts / bolts and keeping them from getting lost

Why not change the supercharger coupler while you have everything apart?

You don't have to crack the case to change the oil (or remove the s/c). It'll be an added $75 cost to do it, the anaerobic sealant used to seal the snout is not cheap ($40 for a small tube from GM). I'd wait until you have a problem with it.

Gotcha, I thought he was taking it apart since I saw S/C gasket, but now that makes sense to me.

N/A mistake, sorry Embarassed

Yes I have been studying the movie on GT forums, there is nothing wrong with the S/C but going to change out oil since I have the two GM bottles laying around. Will concentrate on labeling and taking pics.
Thanks for the input guys keepem coming!

Don't know if it matters to you but when I had mine done I took the Alt out and had it rebuilt and powder coated.

If you have a rethreader kit, or a friend that has one or even a tap and die. I usually like to run clean the threads in the bolt holes and on the bolts. helps to get a more even torque accross all the fasteners.

Best advise...if you get pissed walk away for 15 minutes and then come back.
