Before getting the V-8 power in, we have to get the six-cylinder out. Removal of the six-cylinder powertrain is straightforward. We begin by disconnecting and removing the battery, cutting off the exhaust system, draining the fuel tank, disconnecting the fuel lines and clutch linkage, draining all fluids, removing the driveshaft, disconnecting the parking brake cables, removing the starter, and dropping the transmission. You may also pull out the engine and transmission through the top as an assembly to save time. We dropped the transmission out through the bottom to ease storage concerns.
