    Hello,

    I'm trying to remove my cylinder heads on my 2012 Tundra 5.7 V8. Am I wasting my time trying to do it in the truck? Or, do you recommend pulling the engine first?

    Not sure you can pull the engine without lifting the cab or cutting out the radiator support. Haven't looked at pulling the heads but i do know there is very little space next to the firewall. If you can get a torque wrench in there for the reinstallation, just pull the heads. The engine requires a two post lift to seperate the cab from the frame.
