Yeah honestly they are tight but luckily it's very easy to lift the V10 a few inches to get the clearance you need.

I just undo the bolt on each motor mount, remove the cross brace in the engine compartment and windshiled cowling (have to do this on all Gen 3-4-5).
Put the floor jack with something to spread out the force of the jack (block of wood) onto the oilpan and lift away.

If you're still stuck grab a prybar and rotate the motor a tad by leveraging the motormount, and it will slip right in. It sounds like a PITA but it's really not that difficult.

So far both designs (Tri Y and sandwich type ARH collector) have their own unique install issues, but both aren't that difficult to complete.
