not to be ignorant but if you dont know what kind of tools you need your might just want to pay yard to pull it (most around here anyway will do it for an extra $100 or so) you dont want to be laying in the mud at the junkyard trying to get it out to find out your missing the right tool. as a side note I see an 02 gt in your sig, I dont know if your buying it for that buy you know they are diffrent dont you? crown vic's are non pi motors

Oh, I miss read this. You're pulling it out of a junker. Bring an Oxy Acetylene torch, and a socket set, wrench set, and a 48" pry bar.

Thanks for all your help guys! looks like my friend will be getting a PI swapped motor for $130 bucks, now we just gotta fine a cheap PI mustang intake... unfortunatly the Oxy Acetylene torch is a no go since pull-apart dosnt allow torches or saws of any kind in

13mm fot the bell bolt, and 21 for motor mount nuts. a swivel 13mm would be nice, or even a swivel joint. 7mm-21mm sockets and wrenches, extensions, ratchets, pliers, prybar, screwdrivers, and snips are what i can think of off the top of my head.
