Loosen all 8 header nuts all the way on the on the driverside header but dont remove the nuts, just enough so that they can stay on the stud without them coming off. You will also have to remove the knucle bolt on the steerig shaft. and remove both egr tube nuts connected to the header. Now tilt the header as far over as it will go, you should have enough clearance for the bellhousing...DA Snake Boy!!

i had a shop do some work on the motor and they pulled everything out of it. but I went in there to help get the car back together and we just put the motor in. and that was tough as it was. can you put it all together and drop the whole assembly in at once?

Yes you can pull the motor and put the tranny on with both long tubes and drop the engine from the top, but the car will have to on jack stands in the front about 6 to 8 inches high because the engine will have to go in at an angle..BTW remove the steering shaft knuckle bolt and move the steering shaft out of the way as much as possible and the motor will go right in...DA Snake Boy!!!
