If you are pulling the engine from a 02-05 WRX or any STi, you need to disconnect the clutch fork. Once you remove your starter there will be a hex plug behind it, remove it. Take a long bolt from your plastic timing cover and thread it into the pin inside the hole you removed the hex plug from. Pull on the bolt until you pull the pivot pin out completely. This is a 100% necessary step.

Another necessary thing- you must use something (jackstand or jack depending on weather you have a lift or not) on the transmission to lift the engine mounts out of the subframe.
