It's very easy DIY even with the motor in the car. You just can't do it on the engine stand.
You will need 4 long M12 bolts for the engine stand. They go where the 4 big transmission bell housing bolts normally mount.
got it. i will make sure I change out #2 as well.

with regards to the mounting the engine, it makes total sense now.
i am using a lot of PEI330 pictures as reference and here is a picture of his engine mounted on his stand using the tranny bell housing bolts
