Also if a kid can kick your car off a jackstand, he's superman in diapers. A car that's properly lifted on a jack + jackstand will have zero risk of dropping on you short of being pulled off by another car running into it.
He did have an O2 sensor wrench but couldn't fit it all the way up there to remove it prior to taking out the whole DP. I think the only issue was it was hard to fit two hands to leverage the turbo and DP.

Haha yeah, but point being is it's not the safest place. Whether a car hits mine or not, there is always a car parked next to me which doesn't make enough room. Pretty much always prefer to do it in a garage regardless. Peace of mind, don't have to worry about any random car hitting mine, running over my legs, etc.
