You don't need to remove the motor to install it relatively easy. If it's already out sure...
Remove the intercooler and air cleaner for more acces in the back and firewall area and definately install it dry with no glue so you can slide it around and push the back part down behind the shock tower cross member to get it perfectly in position. You can remove the 2 rear motor mount bolts and lower the motor on a jack around 5 inches at the back edge carefully if more room at the firewall is needed.

Then use 3M spray adhesive or similar. The flamable stuff. It's like spray can contact cement.

Put the little spray straw in the nozzle and with the sound pad in place and everything dry insert the can in the top and spray the glue back in there as far as you can and all over the top contsct area.
Maybe use a brush to apply the contact glue at the very top edge to keep it looking neat.
I've done it a couple times.. the first time with glue ended in the trash with anger and this way starting dry worked very well.

Richard danver is the guy in charge on that call but he has said no problem
