Any tips on removing the housing? I have the six bolts off, undid the oil pipe going to the vanos, all electrical connections are off but this thing won't budge. Also, those dowel pins are not listed anywhere, anyone have part numbers in case I bend mine?

edit: Never mind, got it with a few taps with a rubber mallet. Now if I can only undo this power steering pump. Already have two bolts off but it is still sticking to the housing. Does anyone know how many bolts is holding the P/S pump to the housing?

edit edit: Got it! Stupid bolt under neath in the back.
