Removing the engine out the top

Hey I have a quick question, I'm removing the engine only.

is it possible to do it with the exhaust manifold attached or do I have to take it off?

the main reason I'm asking is because the new engine goes in with a header on it and I am not sure if I should bolt that on already :)

2.0 out 2.5 in :)

Thanks..

Easier to remove the motor from the bottom. Been there done that.

I'd put the car on jackstands & use a floor jack to lower the motor, trans. Remove the exhaust manifold= really makes it easier then w/ it on.

will also have to remove the tranny?
when I took the tranny out last time to change the clutch I had to loosen all the k member bolts, do I still have to do that?
How high do I have to get it?

I'd get it at least 2' in the air. You want to be able to slide underneath it.

^^ what he said. just pull both out the bottom the extra hassle of trying to leave the tranny in is just going to lead to more frustration. plus gives you a good time to do some bay cleaning.

if you are not reusing the motor you are pulling remove the head off with the exhaust mani attached before dropping it. Will give you more room to slide it out the bottom.
