i read that doing it while the engine is still pretty warm makes it easier since the glue holding it on is warm and doesn't hold as well. i'm sure you've already drained all your oil and can't start the engine (or don't want to for that matter) so you could always use a heat gun to loosen it up a little

i finished my car in one day...had three people though....but all i did was take my razor and cut in as much as i could....then took my putty scraper and hammered it at an angle to finish it off...make sure you get as much gasket as you can off the block and oil pan for a good seal

Drain oil and remove oil filter
Drop all the bolts holding the oil pan and nuts from the studs.
Use a putty knife on the front of the oil pan closest to the front of the car, get in as far as you can, which means the entire putty knife should go through.
Pull out the dip stick
Use a small crow bar to get in and pry up....the entire oil pan pops off.

I've used that technique 3 times in the past 2 months, worked like a charm regardless of if I used copper rtv or the ultra black rtv.

I got the pry/crow bar from Lowes, cost about $5, it's the smallest type you can buy I would think.

Please don't use a torch or anything ridiculous like that.

although i don't know how many of the ways described are ninja like so that you could do them while someone is sleeping and not wake them up

i got a better ninja idea! just bolt the oilpan to the ground somehow... then jack the car up! and then when the car goes up the oil pan goes down!!!

lots of razor blades, small hammer, and a ton of patience. That is all.
