The starter under the intake manifold reminds of a French car I had to work on once. Had to remove the exhaust and intake manifolds to get to the starter. Four hours of work just to replace the starter which only took 15 minutes once I got to it.

I believe the Northstar V-8’s that Cadillac used, and the 5.6 Nissan/Infiniti V-8 is that way.

I’ve even seen one where the starter is INSIDE the bell housing for the transmission. So you have to pull the transmission to get to the starter……

If there ever was a case for eugenics, these engineers are it. All automotive engineers should be apprenticed to a mechanic before designing anything. Instruct the mechanic to hit them on the elbow with a hammer every time they get close to anything sharp, or tight, or hot. Speaking as one doing mechanical work, but also have a BScME.
