Droping the subframe really is about the only way to do it on a van, coming out the top is possible on some of the gm vehicles but is very tight.

Yes, I am doing it now. Need to take out the heads and lower manifold, alternator, starter, A/C compressor detached and hung on the side, bracket bolts, engine mount, etc... I have pictures that I will soon place on http://chevyventurefix.com soon.
