Pulling my motor for the first time

I dont have access to a lift or anything so I am planning on pulling it out of the top. What do I have to look out for? I dont have to do anything with the steering rack or anything if I pull it out the top right? I was hoping to keep the manifold and turbo on it when I pulled it out. What do I do about the AC? I will have to disconnect those lines right?*



The plan is to pull it, ship off the head and get a shortblock back and assembly it with the turbo kit on an engine stand before dropping it back in.*



I have looked over a lot of DIY's and a lot seem to be out the bottom from a lift.*



Any tips and tricks?*



Thanks in advance.*

As far as the AC is concerned, try to leave the pump connected if you can.

YouTube Devin Niemela and he'll have instructional videos for working on the Evo X, to include pulling the motor from the top. I've done the same just from watching his videos and I left the pump just connected.
