I saw a guy just onbolt the intake stuff (leaving the vacuum and fuel lines intact where possible), and bungee the intake up to the hood sort of, then pull the long block out, and drop a new one it.... made for a fast swap....

Here's the job as I recall:
-remove the battery (not totally necessary, but gives you a little more room)
-disconnect and label the following (easiest to do as you do everything else)
-----vacuum lines, fuel lines, and wires from engine to body, throttle cable, hill-holder cable
-drain and remove radiator
-disconnect engine from mounts:
-----There are two lower mounts, and the upper pitching stopper. I like to totally remove the pitching stopper so it's out of the way. Some people remove the two nuts that hold the lower mounts to the crossmember, so the mounts come out with the engine. I prefer to remove the four bolts that hold the mounts to the engine, so that the mounts stay in the crossmember. This allows the engine to slide forward off the tranny without raising it much first.
-remove the four nuts/bolts holding the engine to the tranny... remove the starter if you want, but it's not absolutely necessary.
-connect a hoist to the engine (a chain and an eight foot 4x4 works if you've got two people) and support front of the tranny with a jack or jack stand.
-lift the engine slightly and pull it forward about six inches until the tranny is clear of the clutch, and the engine studs are clear of the tranny
-up, up, and away... it's out. Just be sure you don't have any load bearing wires still connected.
-installation really is largely the reverse of removal.
Did I forget anything??
