yea you gotta jack the motor up to remove the pan. If you have an engine hoise (cherry picker) that makes things a lot easier.

And be sure to get a one-piece oil pan gasket like the Felpro OS34508R, not the OEM multi-piece (crap gasket). The one piece costs a bit more (like twice the price) but well worth it.

Pending upgrades: Shaftmasters Aluminum 3.5" DS, FRPP 3.73 gears, Axle back exahust (?)
