[DML] Re: Pulling an Automatic (Dreaded Crossover Pipe)

Reply doesn't help your problem, but y'know what my biggest complaint
about the stock exhaust setup is? Everything is tucked up tight
against the engine, meanwhile there's beaucoups of unused space
outside the engine cradle. I know this yields efficient assembly line
manufacturing, but as you're discovering it's a pain to work around
thereafter. I removed my crossover pipe for the same reason -- to aid
transmission removal. Decided not to put it back, but rather engineer
an alternative that takes advantage of unused space. Yields other
benefits as well:
- Less heat against the engine, especially across the front
- No heat against the rear fascia
- Ability to rotate the engine with a socket wrench
- Access to the Valley of Death from under the car
- Room for an eventual power steering pump

BTW: Exactly why are you leaving the crossover pipe in place?

Proper transmission jack is worth its weight in gold.
