I actually tried mine in the car first, spent few hours trying to center it, realized that its not worth the risk, then took the tranny out, which turned out not as hard as I thought. Plus it gave me an opportunity to cleanup the tranny real good.
Its somewhat easier with manual tranny, although still risky that it won't be perfectly centered.
That's all I am saying
