Scott: I've pulled the engine with the tranny attached. I've also pulled
it by unbolting it at the bell housing. In either case figure at least 2
hours of work the first time you do it - it will go faster if you do it a
2nd, 3rd and 4th time. The shop manual is very helpful in guiding you
through the removal/installation process. If you don't have one, consider
purchasing one before you begin. Good luck!

Was: Expensive engine noises... Then: Engine rebuild...
Can the engine be pulled with by unbolting it from the bell housing or
does it get separated at the bell housing/transmission interface?
PS. I confess to having unpure Alpine thoughts... Anyone want to talk me
in to or out of a V6 or V8 conversion???
