Thanks for the heads up on the flywheel bolts. I just picked up some ARP flywheel bolts in addition to the ARP head studs directly because of reading this thread. Thank you!

Yeah, except you've done it so many times, I bet you can get it dropped and back in in under 3 hours, haha.

By myself takes me a hour and 32 minutes with no help to drop the tranny. Chris secretly timed me lol and that was taking my time.

I know that feeling! After I blew my first motor, I got a used long block and put it in. Tried to start it, and no joy. Turns out I had no spark because the new long block was out of an auto car, and the crank position sensor bracket (that bolts on behind the flywheel) is different from a manual.

Like you said, it sucks to have to drop the tranny right after getting everything back together.
