i just did mine a couple weeks ago and im posting pictures soon. its easy really. just label all your hoses and electrical connections with tape and sharpie. disconnect a/c compressor and power steering pumps and let them dangle. disconnect tranny bolts, 2 on top u can get to with a wrench and the others a socket wrench. disconnect 3 starter bolts, the top one is a PITA. unbolt the motor mounts with 21mm short socket. get that bitch outta there.

you can leave them connected, but you could also just get a fuel rail disconnect tool from autozone and pop it off there really quick.

on modular depot there's a good writeup someone did a couple years ago.

just make sure you hang the PS pump on the body somewhere with a coat hanger when you get the motor out of the way, mine started leaking because i let it hang

if you need more help PM me. i literally just did this a couple weeks ago and actually my new motor still has to be dropped in. if you need to swap fuel rails then YES go to advance autoparts and buy a fuel line disconnect tool. its a couple bucks and its like a piece of metal that will pop the line off the rail. ill tell you right now, its a billion times easier to remove the intake manifold and then use those holes to pull the engine, and it will make the engine just that much lighter when you pull it
