The mount "might" be in the way (but I doubt it, unlees you need to completely remove the belt), but even then, you shouldn't need to pull the engine. Support/move it with a floor jack, and remove just the mount.

I'm not as familiar with the NA'* as SC'*...but there'* a couple pullies on the SC'* and I'm thinking it'* either an idler or the water pump.

Neither require engine pulling. Only supporting while the motor mount is off to allow access to the pullies.

Bad new is..to get the mount off the engine you do have to unbolt the power steering pump. But that'* easy to do through it'* own pulley are two 13mm bolts. One at 12 oclock and one a 6
