The biggest pain in the ass of this job, is accessing the EGR cooler and mixer tube fasteners. I have yet to figure out a combination of sockets and extensions to make easy work of this. The lack of space and working blind is what makes this job unpleasant.
Yes. I unbolt everything so its ready to be removed. Loosen the CAC boots and take the 4 engine cross member bolts out, lower it a few inches and it will slide out the driver side. Be careful when lowering the engine, the crank pulley will touch the cooling fans so not to much or you might damage them. Good luck.
