Best engine lifting method

I'm wondering which method is better and safer lifting an engine (almost fully dressed). Is it using the 4 point method connecting to intake mounting bolts or the lifting plate mounted to the carb mounting bolts? My intake is already on but my carb has not been installed. I may be too much of a worry wort but I'm leary of that much weight being held up with bolts threaded into aluminum plus I really don't want to diturbed the intake mounting bolts that have altready been torqued. Am I stressing for nothing???

When I pulled out the 289 and trans I used a manifold plate. I was nervous about it but it worked out fine. I bought a load leveler from harbor freight to go back in with the 408 and AOD.
