    Yes you have to remove the whole exhaust pipe first. The two major pieces of the exhaust are the stinger section and the u-shaped section.

    As far as using the plug holes to lift the motor, I would highly suggest not doing that. I could see you damaging the head, cylinders, crank case, gaskets, etc. I think a simple strap and chains would work fine.

    Good Luck

    It works best to remove the complete exhaust manifold or leave the manifold on and remove the throttle bodys one or the other needs to be removed for engine extration. I prefer to remove the exhaust manifold. As for lifting a point the exhaust mount where the pipe attaches to the head is where you lift from just re instal these mounts back on the head w/o the pipe that is why they have eye holes in them to lift engine in and out.

    or for a lifting point you can use the engine mounts, run a couple of ropes through the 4 mounts and you have a sling you can use
