its quite an easy job especially if your not planning on keeping the parts, as you can cut the pipes to remove them.

The rad can be easily removed from underneath the car, the only bit i found difficult was removing the pump only because the bolts were so tight, a lot of people don't bother removing the pump but its well worth doing as its very very heavy!

your will need to replace the alternator belt with a shorter one, and will need a heater bypass pipe for behind the glovebox.

If it's still working you will need to get it de-gassed before you do anything.

Definitely remove the pump as that and the bracket that holds it are really heavy. This is what I took out of mine the other day.

Just don't accidentally drop your power steering fluid like I did :paperbag:.

You can just see the bracket for the pump under the fan and aircon box. It is a great big lump of metal.

The car feels a little freer to rev as well but that is probably just the mod placebo.

Yeah there's a fair weight there. 28kg for PAS and AC. Try and get a bypass pipe for your heater!
