    Stand on the inner wings with a rope around the engine and heave...make sure you've had your shredded wheat first though.

    Given the choice I would swap the gearbox and differential as well, but you don't have to.

    Okay will swap the gearbox too, the differential on the donor car has asd and the other car dont have asd so i think it will be hard?

    Be careful that you know what you are taking apart and can put it back together as a wrong connection will damage your electrics and ECU
