Yes you have to remove the bottom black oil pan and remove the bolts that hold the rear adapter from the inside. There is a spor called Gm specs here that shows everything that you need.

Default Adapter Plate Removal

There are at least three hex head upper oil pan bolts that need to be removed to remove the rear adapter plate and two small 12mm head bolts that bolt to the oil cooler (on oil filter). Just pulled one apart. Let me know if you need anything else.

ripmf666 beat me to it.

So you need to remove the flexplate, and bottom oil pan to be able to use an engine stand?

No, you just need longer bolts (110mm long IIRC). Use the two upper holes on either side of the top trans bolt hole and the two lowest holes in the honeycomb area of the rear cover that run into the block.

It said in a GM service guide not to run bolts throught the adapter plate. If you or anyone else has done this without issue I don't see it being a problem, it would make life easier.

IMO, for temporary, theres nothing wrong with it. Could be they worry about the weight of the engine starting to deform the aluminum into the stand mounts after a period of time.
Do what you feel is correct.

Tom if he wants to remove the crank the rear adapter has to come off before the stand. But heck we always rear down while still on the ground then hanging in the air. The reason gm does not want you to bolt to engine stand is most would use the trans bolt holes. And there more of a insert and will pull out or strip easy.

But using longer bolts it would go thru the plate and screw into the block? I'm I understanding that correctly? If you use the short trans bolts only that is when the potential problem starts, and it would only be able to grab the threaded aluminum of the plate holes?

True about the crank. Of course you shouldnt use the trans bosses
I bolted thru the adapter into the block, x.

That pic is getting a lot of mileage.

I didnt i just got long bolts and a different length addapters (3/8ths or 1/2 pipe nipples) and took 4 of the 17 mm bolts out of the rear addapter and bolted to the block thru the adapter. WHAT EVER YOU DO DONT USE THE OUTTER 15 MM BOLT HOLES THE EGNIGES WEIGHT WILL SNAP THEM MOST OF THE TIME
