    So did I but I guess not.....gotta tap the pan to run a bypass line for my oil going to the turbo....most of the time a restrictor will take care of the problem but NOOOOOOOOOOOOO....not on this one.......it has to be difficult!!! I swear I can build 100 turbo cars and all 100 will have something different!!.....

    Once you have the motor suspended, it's only 6 bolts for the K member and 1 for the steering linlage, and let it hang on the shocks. It's really not that bad. I've dropped mine a few times that way. ( in the front yard )

    i did it without lowering the tubular k-member on a friend's car. lifted the motor up to slide the pan out.took a little persuasion but came out and went back in.
