Getting a new engine instead of ripping it apart to find out it's the block anyways. So im getting a engine with 78k. I have many tools and crane in my garage above the pit. So is replacement going to be something I'm capable of doing and if so what's the procedure? Of course please and thank you

Well it's an auto so that makes it easier. You can do it in a driveway. Disconnect the harness, manifolds, mounts, and sensors. Then disconnect the bellhousing, TC bolts (through the starter hole) and maneuver the engine out. Or you can drop the whole cradle...

I did mine in about 3 full days including refresh of the new to me engine. Now these days were way spread out as I'm mretty busy. But I just dropped the entire cradle out the bottom. Was pretty straight forward if your pretty familiar turning wrenches.

Do I need to remove the transmission to get the engine out? Or can the transmission still be mounted in the bay and im able to get the engine to lift up from the top with crane?

With the manual I can pull the whole motor, tranny and angle gear from the top, just have to be careful getting the tranny end around the master cylinder. Not sure if you can do the same with the auto though.

In my case, there were two of us doing the job so at any time one was below guiding and bolting/unbolting while the other was up top driving/balancing the engine hoist and navigating the block down and around the master cylinder and fuse box. It can definitely be done by one person but having two was a solid advantage. We left the AG in though. I like a (relatively) clean engine bay so after quite a few leaks over the years, pulling the trans with the motor meant a chance to clean it off along with the subframe and without too much additional work.

OP, you've got options. Dougy pulled the AG and the motor but left the trans, I pulled the trans and motor but left the AG, and Tony pulled all three.

I'll probably try pulling the motor and angle together leaving the transmission

You can't. Angle gear is bolted to the transmission and it hides a few bellhousing bolts. Pull the angle gear then pull the engine.

I dropped everything out the bottom on the subframe. Trans, ag, motor, axles, control arms, etc... it came out easy and went in easy as well.

Do you have a lift? Hoist the front end? Jack up the front end?

Nope just jack stands and a harbor freight shop crane. You have to get the front up really high to slide it out from under.

You are right I didn't want to drop the subframe and take the engine out from below because I would have to jack it really high up. So I'll do what's listed above pull angle gear, then pull engine

I just unbolted the carrier bearing and took the torque converter bolts out through the starter hole. By myself with a crane and jack stands. Left the turbo on and transmission bolted into place. Used a Robert diy video on YouTube as a guide. This was my first engine pull ever... So yeah you can do it.
