Partial engine drop??

I'm trying to route my oxygen sensor for my HKS boost controller through the 1/2 opening as seen in the picture (see screw driver tip in center of pic). The problem is the sensor needs a 1 1/4" opening and the current opening is only 1/2'.

So, can I partially drop the engine and open the gap enough to sneak the sensor through? If so, do I just put a jack under the engine case, remove the rear engine mount bolts and let the engine drop? How much can I safely drop it? Do I need to undo anything else?

I appreciate the help.

Regards, Dave
