I just did this, i've got my new engine on the stand right now actually. Original plan was to pull the core support, but it was so bad that i left it in. We pulled the engine right up and out of the engine bay. All that really needed pulled out was the radiator and hood. Extremely tight fit though! Now at one point the engine did shift and dinged up the windshield wiper motor, but it wasn't in great shape to begin with so no biggie there.
Biggest challenge is finding something to lift it with. We have a forklift so it was no big deal, but you need something heavy and that can lift high if you leave the core in. These things are beasts! And Bill(alberta7.3) gave me a good tip, just remove the 2 nuts on the engine mounts under the crossmembers. Some write-ups say to unbolt the mounts from the engine, but if you take the nuts off it will lift up and out.
