out the bottom with the transmission still attached and just unbolting the k-member is usually a really nice way to go in an f-body.

they're both about the same amount of work in the end, i guess.. take your pick

Just about every swap that I have seen, they have dropped it from the bottom. I believe that's the easiest way on the 4th gen due to the cowl. I dropped mine from the bottom this past summer and it was a relatively smooth process.

Did it once from top too it was too much of a mess...IMO it was easier and faster from bottom but to each his own... Only thing that bothered me was the long pointy bumper when i did it from top lol
