Was wondering what the best way to go about it was, and how easy it is to do if i got an engine lift.Any good advice will be fine, and useful.....trying to do this the cheapest way possible.....Tranny can come out, but it'* not going with the engine...

Cheapest way is in your driveway. Have you ever pulled an engine before?

Pull the hood and go through the top. Like Gameover said..quick and easy motor only, cut and be done.

If you care about stuff it'll take you a little longer.

No need to pull the tank

Quickest easiest way is w/o tranny. Unless you think you are going to sell it, then pull both together.

Go to the passenger side firewall under the relay center cover and unscrew the bolt in the center of the wiring harness. Flop onto engine. Cut any stragglers going to headlights etc.
Drain coolant and oil out of motor. Cut or unconnect coolant hoses to motor and to firewall and oil cooler lines to radiator.
Disconnect throttle cable from TB
Unbolt all motor mounts and transmission from motor.
Hook up hoist and pull.
