So here is a quick low down on what you need to do
1- remove exhaust cat back
2- unbolt rear propshaft
3- reach over top of the propshaft and remove clips from trans shifter cable, 1 clip is inside the box going to the actual shifter, the other keeps the cable clipped into the box
4- remove front axles and heatshields
5- undo tip wiring harness(front of trans)
6- remove vehicle speed sensor (drivers side CV flange)
7-remove RPM sensor(top of drivers side transmission, on the bell, held in with M8 bolt)
8- remove alternator, then starter
9- remove nuts from motor mounts, remove bolts from trans mounts
10- unbolt all trans/motor housing bolts that you can access, you will need to lift the from of the motor slightly to get access to a couple of them, that is why you undid the motor mounts. At this point a trans jack under the trans is necessary.
