    Unless you pull the engine their is nothing easy about it. You have to fight with it until it fits. Lot of times I have gone in from the bottom with the rear portion fo the bracket cocked up a little then as I get to the point where I shove it on it would take a little wedging and elbow grease. I have also had success coming in front the top the same way. You'll get it. Just takes some time.

    Hell yeah but thats an awful lot of work for something I think you could get by with wedging it into place. Another person on top and you on bottom might even be an easier idea. Thats how I did it when me and my friend swapped the B18 into the EG. Hope this helps.

    Well you could take them both off and then the engine would pivot on the front two but I would have a lift hooked up. If you only want to take one I would pick the drivers side so that when you pull/lift up on the engine it would give a little more play. You might end up removing both.
