For anyone looking to do this on a 2.0 model in the future, this guy was right.
A small ratchet with extensions & and swivel joint did the job. Did not have to remove any mount etc. to remove the pan, just needed to unbolt the header for easer access. The rear bolts are a PITA, but can be done, its good to have new pan with you so you can see where they line up. Total job took me about 2 hrs 30 min. for a first timer. Im glad he posted, this is why i love nasioc!!!! thanks guys
