Honestly the pull isnt that bad. I recommend taking the hood off as opposed to locking it in the service position. You will need every inch possible. As mentioned before label every plug you pull, and if possible take some pics of the harness routing.

Its open to debate but some of my friends claim that its easier and faster to pull the motor with the tranny, and some say its better without the tranny. i personally do not trust the factory hard points on the motor. With that said i wouldnt pull it with the tranny. Good luck man. If I can get a hold of a scanner Ill scan some of the pages from my bentley manual if you dont allready have one.
Born in the BG Raised all over. No wonder I'm confused.
