As a previous 924S owner... You, sir, are one brave man. But why not
just drop a 350 in there and have room to spare? Most folks just bite
the bullet and go with an LS1.

Pulled all the bolts that connect the engine and tranny, pulled the 17 on the bottom of the starter and the 13 holding the wires, and now I'm stuck - literally. Can't get the starter off, and can't pull the pass. side motor mount bracket because the starter is in the way. So, what's holding the starter in? I can't see/get to another bolt.
>So,what's the starter removal proceedure? Alldata suggests removing all the bolts, then reversing for install. Thanks. The Audi mechanic that was helping me (who also owns 2 V8s) was stumped just like me. Can't pull the motor forward because it hits all the mounts. Can't go back. Can't go down and can't come up from what I can see.
