What year is the engine you are swapping in?

If it's a 1994 and below year then you'll be doing some computer and wiring work in addition to the normal labor.

If your dropping in a 7-bolt it should be fairly straightforward, no problems.

However when dropping in a 6-bolt (Which I recommend doing instead) You should follow this.

Tells you everything you need to know. Your going to need to buy 500+ worth of parts though, but it is worth it.

if its another 7-bolt, drop and replace, if its 6-bolt, with 40k, more work, but much better choice =)

More than likely it will be a straight forward install. If you run into problems along the way- you can always post something here :)

If all of the conversion stuff was already done, wouln't it be pretty much a straight swap and replace?

It's a straight swap out. My recommendation is to remove it with the tranny still attached. Bolt the tranny to the new engine and slide it in with a cherry picker.

The swap itself is not hard. Making sure you don't fock something up is a different story.

Do you have to tilt the motor a lot to get the engine out with the tranny still attached, do you remove all the pullies and whatnot for more clearance, or does it just yank straight out with everything still attached??
