i did mine on the spare motor that i bought, just drain the oil, take the 4 bolts out from the assembly, and then cut the chain w/ a dremel. be careful w/ getting metal shavings on the crank/internals.

omniphil has his off i think, he might be abel to give some tips when th emotor is in the car

it doesn't sound hard, i just didn't know if there were common problems that people run into. hopefully it goes smoothly.

No, not really. Sometimes the search button can drive you crazy especially when there 3,000 pages to read through.

Just remove the chain and nothing else...

Yeah, it can be done on the car without too much trouble, theres some bracing that needs to come off before you can drop the pan, its kinda a pain. Probably 3-5 hours or so.

A dremel would have been very handy, didnt have one here at work.

If I had to do it all over again, I would have left it the way it was...
The 10 or so hp isnt really worth the trouble and added vibration.
Its easier to remove 100lbs to get the 10hp :)
