I'd actually recommend removing the harness first. It's not that hard to get 
out with the engine installed, and it gets a lot of rather fragile stuff out of 
your way.

None of the FI harness goes any farther than the engine, except for 1 wire 
which may go to the starter, so this is not a problem.

It might be worthwhile. Some of it is a bit hard to get out. There are actually 
2 main parts to the harness: Front & Rear; then there are a few minor bits here 
and there. The fuse box links the main parts together.
