We need a DIY for this!
I was scared to do this when I did the plugs and just worked around without lowering the engine and it was a hell of a tough time.

Tranny Jack would be best for the weight involved.

You dont need a transmission jack. Assuming you are using a quick jack or jack stands to raise the vehicle, just a hydraulic car jack with a piece of plywood or 2x4 to support under the oil pan is all that is needed. Then follow the directions I posted above. Make sure the plywood is large enough to support the enitre oil pan. I have done this on my 991ttS many times with no issue.

How many miles on your 991? You must have a lot. Any issues?
