Very interesting.

Anyone feel kinda scared watching that in case the engine just drops out on the guys?

I wonder whether in the field there are instances of the engine falling/falling off the engine stands one removed, etc.

It really doesn't look that difficult does it?

As long as you're patient and methodical it looks easier than dropping a boxster engine Question

It really is an easy job on a 911, just takes time because of all the different componenets, lots of things just unplug or unclip. I've got mine out from the car on axles stands a few times in the past. A ramp would be luxury.

Nice! I wouldnt have hesitated to try that when I was younger but these days I barely remember what day of the week it is, so wouldnt dare attempt something like that now.

I'll stick to changing the engine oil and filter. The rest I'll leave to the experts.
