for one...u will need all the proper engine hoist....a helping hand would be nice too.....a car manual is a must if this is ur first time......if the motor is a direct drop in....u won't have to make custom engine the car is the trickiest part.....
also, i would go ahead and get new engine/transmission mounts and flush all of you lines. Here's a great pointer.....try not to break anything off the engine when you put it into the car.;)
ok guys this realy helps but im not a little kid you can tell me stuff that i dont know not what i do know!!!
i have a friggin supra for crying out load lol !
You need to go the They have a ton of info on changing out a 5m to 7mgte. It gets very involved, go to FAQ for more info.
