Wow, I didn't really expect that either and I'm kinda surprised how completely it destroyed the front end...

On a related note, back in the day I owned a '72 Beatle. I could literally go from running to the engine on the ground in 18 minutes. Putting it back didn't take much longer, 30-35 minutes or so unless I had trouble lining up the throw out bearing.

Same here. I was so used to taking apart the v6 on my 98 cutlass and i did it so much, i could be looking at the top of the pistons in literally 10 minutes, and have it back together in about 15 lol
