you cant lift it out on a corsa cos of the batterey tray bracket

either way is ok for you
but i lifted the whole car with the engine hoist via rope rounf the anti roll bar then rolled the engine forward and slid it out the side



i tied a rope to the engine trolley i made, lifted the car off the axle stands, while a neighbour slid the engine out from underneath cant beat manual labour

good job mate!

gonna be weird going from a slow 8v car to a relatively quick 16v - you have to drive it completely different.

Get a velo's torque tube on it!
