Undo the bolts that hold it in...

Haven't done this method yet but it seems like it works very well. Good luck!

It's not too bad but you need to get the car up pretty high. Do a search and there is a huge writeup on it.

yeah. by far the simplest way to do a motor in these cars IMO. do yourself a favor and build a cart for the motor to sit on. can be done for less than 100 bucks at home depot. mines is about 3x4.5 feet so i can drop em with the tranny still on them. once you get everything ready, hook your engine hoist around the core support and start to lift it up off the front jack stands. then wheel your cart under it and set it back down. once you remove the 6 k-member bolts, the 4 tranny cross member bolts, and the strut tower bolts/nuts, lift the car up with the engine hoist till you can roll it out from under the car. put your jackstands back under there, set it down, and get to work on the engine swap. not too bad, should be ready to pull about 2-3 hours after you get it in the air.

Ah its Canadien!! That explains a few terms and some of the writing. Cool its very helpful. I'm trying to study all the info so I can do it in my sleep. That way when my SB gets here I'm ready to go and not fumbling around wondering what to do next.

My rear ships Monday and the SB is supposed to ship a week from Monday I think.
Trying to get it all done and get a decent timeslip before end of season down here.
