Speaking from experience, I had to do my motor twice in one weekend.

First time I got it in and the clutch wouldn't work....go digging through boxes of parts and looked at the old one.. HOW SPECIAL...the Porsche pressure plate is a "pull" style versus the other 50 or 60 other clutches i've done where the TOB pushes to release the PP!!! So after spending about 5 hours (by myself with two floorjacks, an ATV jack and lots of BEER) to install the engine..I get to yank it again.

The next day after re-installing the TOB in the proper location...another 4-5 hours and it was back in.

Looking back, I chalk it up to experience...now I can drop/install that motor in a few hours.
