Martin, thanks a lot for clarifying. 2.7 hrs sounds a little ambitious, but I'm no wizz tech.The original service bulletin calls for the engine to be supported by a fixture and the subframe lowered slightly to provide appropriate access for R&R of the steering gear. The full procedure may be detailed in the Documents forum. Can't remember for sure, but there was a lengthy document that included color photos and step by step procedure.
There were some claims that the engine could be raised enough to avoid lowering the subframe. Don't know whether that was ever verified and substantiated.
ETA: Didn't find it in Documents. Probably buried somewhere in Warranty Issues forum if it even made the trip to the new platform.
