4.6 engine swap

I need to replace the engine in my 02 GT. Is the best way to take it out from under the car k member and all? I don't have a lift so I need to do this swap as safe and easy as possible.

Re: 4.6 engine swap

I would save up and buy a lift. They can be had for less than $200.

Taking the 4.6 out from under the car can be dangerous and cumbersome. Pretty difficult.

We are doing it in a friends garage no room for a lift.

Re: 4.6 engine swap

Roll it outside when you're ready to pull it then put the engine on an engine stand and roll the car and engine back in. That's what I had to do at my house.
