So is there a question here? Not trying to be a dick, but I really can't find a question in your thread. And as for lifting the engine out and it not going any further (which wasn't a direct question but I'll help anyway)... I just pulled my DE, and there are 2 engine mounts, when you start lifting it up the mounts/brackets on the egine got caught on the threads of the mounts on the car (make sense), so you have to play with them a little bit to free 'em up, also, try dropping your driveshaft cradle, and tranny mount, that will let them go at more of an angle, thus you can lift the engine up a little bit more...
Besides the mount threads getting caught, you can go all out and drop the transmission. Then the engine should have more play to raise. Getting 4" out of it shouldn't really require that drastic of measures, especially for something like removing the oil pan, but if you have to drop the transmission, you have to drop the transmission. Good luck to you.

Too bad dropping the tranny is a pain in the @$$... I unbolted the tranny from my engine so i could pull it easier, it comes out really easily, but some of the tranny bolts are such a pain to get to... I had to drop the driveshaft cradle, and tranny mount so we could get some type of an angle out of it so that I could get some tools up there to get the damn bolts off...
Yeah, dropping the transmission mounts and DS cradle are standard operating procedure for dropping the transmission. The bolts on top can be a real pain to get to, but if you're lucky, you can combine everything into one big job, i.e. replace oil pain gasket, clutch, and transmission fluid at the same time.
