No problem. Yes, lift the block.

Loosen the passenger side motor mount bolt. Do not remove it all the way. Just loosen it to the end of the bolt. Get your oem jack and a block of wood and lift on the oil pan. Believe it or not, you only need about an extra quarter inch or so of clearance. This will get it done.

After you put in the new one, don't forget to lower the jack and retorque that bolt. Good luck. Make sure you didn't knock out the half moon cam seals knocking the uppipe around in there.
