what engine do you have

Based on the profile its a 5S (GT Vert). When I did mine, I put the bolts/nuts in a few threads, the tightened everything down. To get to the hard to reach ones (like the ones on the bottom side) I used a few extensions to help me reach up there. You could lift up that side of the engine and place the mount on the engine, then lower it and attach the rest of the hardware.

I believe I did the mount and then the upper cover on the last 5s I did. I don't remember the other 5Ss I've done lol.
