Removing head bolts--loosened them small amounts at a time in cross pattern--want to not mess the heads up

Head off

Look at the carbon at the bottom of the cylinder..

Same on this one

Real bad on this one, ew

Here's the coolant crossover pipe from the inside (looking through from where water pump normally is)

Now time for the bottom

Lower oil pan off. Good job coolant in making a milkshake

Lots of pieces of plastic, I believe it's from when I used an impact to remove the valve cover bolts.. so yeah, don't do that

Upper oil pan removed to expose oil pump
