Transmission blues

I've been working on this trans for a week now, and I still can't get it out. Is there a trick, rotate the enigne, trans or what? It's free, just won't come out the car. I need some help, or I'm going to burn it down. All I have to do is replace the slave, and put it back together, but I can't get it done. I have a 2004 SVT 5 door. This is the last time I try this. Try to save some money, and it gives you a heart attack. HELP!

What are they talking about "subframe"? Is that the black metal boxing in the front end?
