This thread is ancient, I've had my long tubes and k memeber for awhile but since its already bumped I might as well add an update from this install that dates back quite a bit. Even with NO k member in the car it was still a PITA bolting up my longtubes just because of the simply fact the 4v heads are huge and I could not get to a single bolt from the top inside the engine bay. I used a engine support bar I got from harbor freight and pretty much lowered the engine as far as possible and got all the bolts from the bottom, its sounds easy but alot of the bolts on the topside of the header were still a PITA to get to due to clearance issues and also the primaries. Now I have yet to attempt removing or installing once with my tubular k member in but I suspect it to still be a little bit of a pita, im sure with some articulation I can probably jack the motor up some and maybe.....maybe get some bolts from the top. I would have to assume its alot easier to do headers on a 2v just because the heads aren't nearly as big sitting in the engine bay. But honestly when it comes to a stock k memeber I cant see even trying when it only takes like an hour to drop the factory K-member with the a arms and spindles on it, maybe even less than an hour.
