lol... yeah in the d-way on jackstands... but probably my 6th one so take that into consideration

but do not ever pay for it... it is easy. a lot depends on when the exhaust was last removed.... short or long tubes, and knowledge of the shifter coming out (i never put the top 2 bolts in for the boot)

expect a day... but should be no more......should be 4-6 hours tops if first time and unsure

dont know how the housing is. From the pictures I see it looks like there are bolts on both the trans side and the motor side of the housing.Im assuming you unbolt the housing fromthe motor like anything else?

There are two bolts on each side holding the trans to the bellhousing. The top ones are kind of a pain in the rear, and using a couple extensions will make this A LOT easier. If you plan on taking the bellhousing off to change the clutch/flywheel it will be easier if you take the trans out first, then unbolt the bellhousing. Doing it that way gives you a bit more room to get to the top bolts on the bellhousing.
