Good to hear everything worked out and was waiting to see if you posted. I suspect your ext./welded socket didn't do the job. I've decided to remove the t stat housing also and am considering replacing the whole housing because everything in one piece ( housing, sensor, tstat). I'm at 100k. Is the long torx bit absolutely necessary? I was wondering about the coolant lines and dreaded banjo bolt, glad to hear I want have to deal with them. Sounds like a lot less plumbing than ihe 850 I am used to. I'll be starting mine this week. Thanks for the very useful info. Glenn

In my case, the long torx was necessary as all the torx sockets I had of that size were 1/2" drive and too short - no way they were going to clear. Completely worth the $7 I spent on that long torx. The left bolt that holds the PCV box to the block is also challenging to get to...definitely need a 10mm 1/4" drive with extension and wobble on that one.
