I'm planning on pulling the 200K engine out this winter for some R&R on the bench. Most folks drop the K20 out the bottom, but I feel like coming out the front makes things easier. Right? Remove radiator, condenser, fans, bumper, etc. Then, pull the engine and trans out forward with a hoist...leaving the subframe in place.

Anyone try this? Any issues to note?

Bump -

Another reason to try this route is most folks don't have a lift...so you'd have to jack the front of the car up several feet just to get the engine out the bottom, which necessitates at least one other jack, not to mention more time spent on the ground under the car versus on your feet.
