Do you absolutely have to do that in the newer models? In my '05 I just removed the compressor from the block and put it over off to the side, with all of the lines still connected. I'd be surprised if they switched everything to hard lines or made it so that the AC had to be evacuated when pulling the engine. Especially with the way the newer models like to crack ring lands (supposedly).

Try not too. Not sure if it's the same but on 04-07 you can just unbolt the compressor and swing it off to the side and zip tie it to the radiator support. Don't think I have a pic. If you do that you have plenty of room to pull the motor. Do the same for the power steering pump. Lmk if ya have anymore questions.

When i was looking at the low pressure line it looks like the guy that had it before me tried to just pull the line and then tightened it down with pressure still in the line.. so how do i get the line off and reset back in place. I need to drain the system.
