OK the first step towards the TVS install is done. I changed out the heavy 07 balancer with the new 08. Very easy to do .
After putting emergency brake on and shifter in gear, block one wheel

(1)Unbolt the two reservoir tanks and move to the side (temp tie with hose covered wire )
(2) Removed the fan assembly (2 bolts ) + wire disconnect
(3)Loosen both serpentine belts
(4) Removed OEM balancer bolt
(5)Use balancer puller/ installer tool to remove OEM one
(6)Prep new bolt & balancer with antisieze per instructions
(7) Install new 08 balancer and torque per instructions
(8) reverse steps 3 to 1 finish

About 1-1/2 to 2 hrs taking you time.

Svtbird91 my car is under wraps so I am not able to check, but is the install possible from under the front of the engine compartment, or are crossmembers, steering or other components in the way?

Yes they would be in the way . It should be done from above even if you have a lift avalable. IMO

I like going 'round and 'round and 'round :D

Wow how many miles do you have on you car now ? I have about 3800 .

I love to drive it.

Most of the miles were put on the first summer, we loved to just drive it around town.

I love to drive it.

Most of the miles were put on when I helped some guy from Minnesota pick up his car. He was lost in Fayetteville, so we loved to just drive it around town until he got his bearings.
:mad:
