I will bet you anything I own that you can not pull a motor in 2 hours.

Did I say 20 minutes? Wow there is no way it could take that long. I can do it in 10 minutes easy, and with only an adjustable wrench, and the stock jack.

4 feet?! Come on man, I've helped move one at least 8 feet before a random nub of metal on one of the heads started cutting my forearm.

Dave, I admire your optimism, but I also don't think there's any way you'll get your motor out in two hours. Think of all the thoroughly stuck bolts from those 77,000 miles -- just spraying them all with PB will take time. Not to mention that taking things apart is usually easier than putting them back together in a manner that makes the car still work right.

Maybe you could buy some cams like you want, make an appointment to have the gaskets replaced and the cams swapped, and that way get a nice extra bonus out of the money you're spending. I would think if you scheduled in advance with someone reputable, you might only be out of a car for a couple of days. Worth it IMO for the couple hundred bucks you MIGHT save doing it all yourself (on your third floor balcony).

We tried to pull a Supra NA motor out of a car after nearly all the lines had been disconected and wires snipped...

We spent 6 hours trying and making slow progress, and then gave up... and this was a scrap car that we didn't mind hurting.

AznImpreza has a motor just above 100K, It has rally spec cams on them. Were doing his WRX swap now, and the engine is just sitting in theherminators garage.

How long did it take you to get the motor out of the car?

I've down a sr2o swap in my old nissan took 4hrs to get it out, and around 12 to get it back in, trouble shoot etc. It was my first time and I didn't know what I was doing, so if you were determined enough you might do it in a long weekend.

ps. Yeah, I know the nissan motor was prolly 10x easier then a subie motor.
