We removed everything.... That was just because we swapped engines/trannys. We removed fenders, fender wells too. All you could see was the frame then motor....
The a/c: We removed the condensor, compressor and the blower box as one unit. It clears alot of room.
Since you just want to yank it out, fix the oil pan, and put it back. Remove the hood, radiator, fan, disconnect the power steering lines at the pump, remove the a/c like I mentioned above, disconnect the electrical harness, unbolt the trans. bell housing, remove the starter, disconnect the downpipe from the turbo. Before you yank it out, make sure your engine hoist will handle the weight and lift high enough so the oil pan clears the radiator core support. I would remove the core support, grill, header panel, just so I wouldn't have to lift the engine that high.
It is pretty straight forward and always fun to pull an engine. While you have it out, fix the dipstick tube and go ahead and replace the oil cooler orings/gaskets.
