There are some myths around working on these cars, so just wanted to write a short post about it. 1. You can get the headers out with the engine in the car. On the right side you need to remove the starter to free up enough space. From what I can see left side should be possible as well, though you might have to remove the steering rack. 2. It's probably the easiest to remove the engine without the gearbox. If you take off the starter bracket, you have good access to the bolts on the flex plate. You need a lift for this though, it's a hassle doing this lying under the car. You don't need to move the gearbox a lot to get it off, maybe 2 inches. The engine and gearbox is a long unit, so is a hassle. We removed both though, since we are changing some seals on the gearbox as well. From what I can see I have to change two liners, heard a lot on how involving this is, will have to see if this is something we can do ourselves or not. Engine is currently on an engine lift, where we can turn it all directions to asses the situation properly.
