Hi, I've just recently purchased a 1996 SHO after owning a 1994 SHO for 10
years. The engine in the SHO has been damaged due to cam failure and I have
another engine to put in it. I have been told by numerous people that the
engine has to drop out through the bottom of the car, is that true? Where
can I find information on this? Thanks!
Seriously, it doesn't have to come out the bottom but other then one recent
write up, I have never seen anybody say they could get it out fast through the
top. Outside in my driveway without a lift it takes me about 3 and a half hours
to get it on the ground. I have heard of a few shops that can get it done in
less then an hour, of course they are using a full lift (I am only using a front
bumper lift). I personally think it is less hassle through the bottom other then
the rear O2 sensor connectors which after four or five removals still have not
found the trick to not wasting 30 minutes fighting with them.
I'd hate to see how fast Carter could remove the engine in a properly equipped shop!!
