Drop exhaust manifolds
Remove starter, suspend from frame with bunge cord

Obviously the radiator has to come out
Remove the lower fan belt pulley from the harmonic balancer
Disconnect torque converter from flex plate.
Your engine hoist needs to be a short vertical beam. They make them, and you have to ask them, how tall is the vertical boom on the hoist. It should be about 4 feet. A regular engine hoist boom will be about 5.5 feet tall that will not work. Your horizontal boom needs to go in to the engine compartment, almost level. Get the hook as close to the block as possible to the block.
Lift out motor, you will have to tip the front of the motor up to clear the front subframe.
It's a tight squeeze, but it lol come out I reinstalled my motor with the heads on, it was no big deal, but it's easier weight wise with the heads off. Good luck DJ
