    A bit rough. The rear pass side - without headers - is usually easier from underneath. With long tubes it is usually a toss up. Just takes some patience.
    It's not how fast you can go. It's how fast you can get there.

    Have you removed the coil packs? If not, that frees some working space and it is very easy to do. I pulled the coil packs and went at No. 8 from below. Didn't take long at all to do. Worst part of removing the coil packs is the very back bolt on the passenger side. From what I have read some guys actually leave it out when they re-install them.

    ^^^ do this, leave the back bolt out. I have done it on both my cars and have no regrets. I usually put a spark plug socket on the rear plug and get a combination wrench to put on the socket to get small turns from the top side and that usually works for me. If your motor mounts are old, they can attribute to the engine sagging and I cant really comment on how that would affect my procedure for removal....

    Another nice thing to have is a 1-1/2" extension for your 3/8" ratchet. I did not have one that short and bought one upon recommendation from another member. It really worked well.
