That makes it easier to get to but so much harder and prolongs the install. Just crawl under it or put it on a hoist, and give it a good 30 mins to an hour. Done.

Ive done it on a lift and on the ground. Have to say the lift makes it simple. But if thats not an option I would let the trans sag. Made it so easy for removal and installation

The "ease" of install is not worth the time lost.

Half hour tops without doing all of that. Sit in the car, drop it in, lay under, bolt it on.

It really not a hard install I have an MGW but install should be the same. Mine is a 2010 so I had to loosen the cross member just enough to get the front bolt out due to the plastic "sound shield " as they call it running both sides of the tunnel but I left the driveshaft intact, Would be easier no doubt but not necessary unless you have huge man hands but I don't so wasn't an issue. Also my MGW didn't stay stiff very long wish I could compare the 2 but I can't. Might have to the way people seem to like them.

The hurst stays fairly still all the way through its life span. Good if you like that kind of notchy feel.

So beware in a couple years that hurst bullet plus will feel gravely and rough. Then you have lube it grease and WD-40 to keep it going.
Had mine for 5 - 6 years with no problem. I don't drive mine in the winter though
