I know Emmett has done this in the past. Don't know if he had a thread about it or not? search under his user name ( ejenner )

TBH it's far, far, far easier to remove the whole lump and then split off when it's out.

yeah im thinking that too. I'm just helping a friend drop a turbo lump into an N/A next weekend, just wanting to see how simple it would be to leave the gearbox in.

It would complicate things immensely to get at the engine/tranny bolts from underneath.
Best practice is to remove the whole package and then split it.

Really cannot see any advantage at all in leaving it in place . They are an incrdibly simple assembly to remove , splitting would just complicate as said . re mating the units in the engine bay and getting a good seal would be a nightmare . Having it out in a lump makes cleaning and detailing both the assembly and the engine bay a breeze .
