Default 98 Civix D16 Swap. HELP!!

So I blew the motor on my civic a cpl weeks ago and I was fortunate enough to find another D16 for cheap. My issue is this: I wanna install it myself but am unfamiliar with FWD engine swaps (used to RWD vehicles as I usually drive trucks). I'm looking for some help in what to do (maybe a step by step instruction) or if someone is local to my area, they could come by and help me do this job. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Your location would help. Drop the trans and engine together.

My suggestion would be to drop the engine/trans, raise vehicle up high and slide the motor out from the bottom. I used a tote lid for an engine swap years ago to prevent damaging the oil pan.
