do you have to remove the transmision with the v6 engine or can you remove and install engine with the transmission left in the car (seems pretty tight) I believe I can leave the transmission in if I remove the crank pulley before removing the engine. Please help with any info. thank you

You can swap the engine with the transaxle still in place, but would be much harder than just removing it with the engine.  Can be done, and you\'ll have just enough room.  But you\'ll likely find that it was easier to pull it out than put it back together - clearance wise.
