    I just don't understand all the extra work of dropping it out the bottom. Why is it people want to take it out the bottom?

    It's easier then going out from the top since our motors are so far back.

    Stop wasting so much time?!?!? ahahahahahahaha

    Using a lift, I've had an entire engine/tranny out of an F body (from below) in less than an hour.


    BTW that is how techs at dealerships do it (out the bottom). When you're flat rate you find the quickest way to do things= you make more money.

    It took us 2hrs to take it out the top with the hood on. Maybe you guys just need better mechanics

    I always drop out the bottom but having said that it makes it easier to do my front suspension (mostly rod ends replacement) maintenance at the same time.

    Ed Wright, local tuner and known throughout the country pretty well, always takes his out the bottom. He has it down to such a science, he can have it out the bottom in 40 minutes. Most people with experience doing it both ways will tell ya, out the bottom is faster/easier.
