I took the opportunity to install my Stern motor and tranny mounts at the same time. It is incredible what you have to remove just to SEE the to bolts: bumper, rad support, AC compressor, and both turbo inlet pipes and associated piping :shock:

That said, it was awesome to drive off after all that work, with nice crisp shifts and a firmly seated lump :D
