... funny how short the memory can be sometimes ... frankly, I don't
remember this being a big deal when I did this during the engine swap.  Once
you pull out the heat shields there's a good bit of room to work in there
... I don't remember having a difficult time finding tools to get to the
nuts ... there's certainly no need to pull the headers!
