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. _________________ 997 GT3 RS 3.8

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 _________________ 996 turbo - slightly modified....

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. _________________ http://euroroadtripper.blogspot.co.uk/

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. _________________ 2008 997.1 Turbo Manual

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