I have a heated garage.

I already have a couple of guys lined up.
It's just finding the time to do it.

If you have room to place engine in car with tranny attached it will make life simple for you...this can be done normally with front clips off the car etc..
don't know how many motors/engine you have put in ...but a good cherry picker and a spotter..its not that bad of a job.....

It's going in an altered. So no front clip to worry about.
I'm no mechanic but my dad and brother are. My dad owns his own shop. So we will be using one of his bays.
