99 540i engine replacement (best removal and install method)

Hello I new to the forum but I just purchased a 99 BMW 540i and have a replacement used motor. What is the best way to remove and install this motor? I have access to a 4 post lift.

Is there step by step thread on the process of removal and installation using a lift?

Thanks

Whats the reason your replacing the motor?

For your first time removing an engine, expect it to take anywhere from 6-8 hours unless you have knowldgeable friends helping.

The timing chain tensioners went out, so is that with or without a lift. Is there s thread with a step by step process?
