dont look as bad as pulling the engine out. you got that down to a few hours this should be alright except having to lay in the trunk to get the top bolts for the mounts loose.

Just changed the oil, seem to do that pretty frequently now that I'm putting 500+ miles a week on her. Need to replenish my stock of Mobil 1 filters. $13.50 at the local store, or I can pick them up for around $8 online, buy them in bulk and the shipping is hardly noticeable.
