No idea why you would want to try this. And I suspect you will not be able to withdraw all the gearbox mounting bolts (if you can indeed get to them all), as they will not clear the body.

When we did the engine swap we didn't even consider removing the box with with the engine. Started at 5am and we were doing a test drive at 5pm.
