    There isn't a how2 a few of us accomplished this on Justin (whiskeyno7) old Vec c ... You ideally need a hoist to remove the engine and refit thr new one if you plan to man handle it into place you will without a doubt end up damaging something on the car or the engine or its ancillaries ...
    it took 5 people with varying levels of experience ( including an ex mobile patrol repairer ) 2 days to complete and half of the stripping had already been accomplished prior to the main group attending to do the wowork your going to need lots of tools and lots of space ...and most importantly lots of patience

    ask tditony , he replaced the engine on his sri dti last year , dropped everything out the bottom on the subframe , swapped engine & then lifted the lot back into place .
    then it just needed a quick go on opcom to program the new engine to the immobiliser.
