    take off the air lid, belt, hoses and remove the 6 bolts that holds it on
    youll need gaskets, and fluid for the swap
    and I think its 18lb ft on the bolts to reinstall
    all you should need is a flat head screw driver, 15mm to take the belt off and a 10mm for the water pump bolts

    Blacked out
    '98 Trans Am

    u will want someone to help u hold shit in place when putting the gaskets back in place, that is a PITA

    but as far as taking it off, remove 6 bolts from the front, one bolt may hit a pulley (it did on mine, a 98) dont worry about it, if its spinning free the bolt doesnt have to be all the way out. the pump will probably be stuck, so get a stick or something and pry it off. the block

    This link should help you out. Just ignore the wiring aspect.
