Thus far, while it has been a major PITA, due mostly to clearance/access issues, I have removed pretty much everything necessary.
All I have left is to remove the exhaust manifolds (I soaked them a few days in PB Blaster and previously loosened all of them, just to be safe), then I should be able to loosen the bolts and remove both heads.
Do you know something about this that should concern me?
Perhaps you are thinking that some years require engine removal (I have read that, but '01 does not seem to be one of those years).
