OK i got a tomei oil block i'm trying to put on but i cant get the factory one off. I got pretty big hands and cant reach the bolts with anything! make things worse they are hex nuts. I tried from the bottom but the engine mount gets in the way. I really dont want to take too much shit off to get this done, i'm trying to run an oil cooler basically. So any shortcuts or anything would be appreciated.

remove the intake manifold and plenum. while its off, also remove all the brackets, and it will be easier to put back on. Youll spend more time trying to figure out "another way". Trust me.

Shit, I'm pretty big guy myself and I did it from underneath. Its not impossible.
Oh and having a hex sockets>using just L-shaped hex keys.
