Raise the transmission, try to get the motor aligned with the transmission while it is being lowered into the engine bay.

The driver's side axle was removed. That did not allow enough of an angle on the transmission.

More mounts were removed until there was only one left - the fender on the driver's side. The transmission still would not flex far enough.

Almost 4 weeks of trying to get the warp 11 motor into the engine bay with the transmission already inside. Very frustrating, but no progress. I didn't feel like taking video of failure after failure, so no video. And no PROGRESS!!

Finally I accept that the transmission must come out ... I need to disconnect all of the cables, connections, the clutch ...

But there is a plan!
