Default how complete can the engine/acces. be prior to install?

been a long while since i logged in, place looks great!

how complete can an engine assembly be prior to installing in the car [1995 ssei]? i'd like to have the acces bracket, supercharger, coil pack, wires, etc. all on before installing. i had the engine very much apart prior to the pull i cannot use my own experience.

i forgot where half the stuff goes, esp the engine harness...

If you have everything mounted on the sub frame, it can go in complete. If the transaxle is in and your lowering the engine on to that, you can go in mostly complete. But the less you have on the block, the easier it is to wiggle in to place. It really depends on what kind of lift your using. A good cheery picker with a load shifter will make your life much easier. Being able to tilt the engine is a big help.
