Piston coolers (oil nozzles): how difficult to change?
I am thinking of doing the updated oil spray nozzles that cool the piston bottoms. Can these be changed relatively easily while the connecting rod bearings are changed using the "simplified method" (take front suspension apart, remove oil pan, leave engine in car, etc.)
Also, would this be a great time to change a TBA as well? Not sure what needs to come off the top of the engine, if anything, during a rod bearing swap.
