its hugely dependent upon your skill set and your tool set. i have
dropped mkII engines 6~8 times and a few mkIs as well. for me
personally i would still budget ~8hours, yet i read accounts of others
saying they did it 3 hours the first time. a 1 car garage is going to
be very tight, i wouldnt want to do it in one, but im sure i could.
getting the car high enough to slide the engine out is no small feat.
also make sure you bag and tag all your fasteners, clips, hoses etc.
this is good practice, but especially important if you have never done
there are a good number of write-ups on engine drops, do a little
research and see which style of drop suits your tools, skills, and
space the best.
