Some of my family members own a mechanic shop, so I too grew up mechanically inclined and yes I 'AIDED' in a turbo swap but I was definitely not the solo captain of this project. I am 100% sure you need to drop the subframe which is why this DIY is almost impossible without the right tools. Your going to need a lift, transmission jack and the tools specified above for sure along with an engine brace to support the motor after you take the sub frame out...
Like I said, if you work at a shop you don't have to worry about the right tools as everything is there for you. Grab an extra pair of hands and get the job done faster.
FU*K lol damn I'm probably gonna have to pay my boss cuz I'm gonna take up the bay. for possibly a Day or 2 but tools I'm not worried about tools but time is an issue. + I'm a full time student. i might pay one of the guys at the shop to do it haha..
