That's a helluva lotta work just to get your car to "run better" . You could drop it out the bottom, but you still need a hoist to raise the car.

For what you're spending to completely rebuild a motor that probably doesnt need rebuilt, you could've just bought a new(er) one.

Not likely without damaging something.

I believe that with the 1990's you can jack up the front of the car and remove the engine bracing and lower the engine out the bottom with just a floor jack, my friend did it to his 89 prelude which is a very similar engine/setup...
