It don't look like it will fit through the opening without removing the exhaust manifold, is this nessary?
Its tight, but it will come through there, you dont have to remove the manifold, just remove the cooling fans.
OK I just took a look and it looks like it might come through that hole. Could you also tell me how much oil this system requirs?
Here are the capacity specs.
