Question PT engine swap

I been asked by a friend to swap an engine on his 2001 PT Cruiser. I've done plenty of swaps just never a PT. Should I worry about any thing big like having to drop in out the bottom or does it come out the top good?

Help with these asnwers if you can and thank you.

most front wheel drives come out alot easier as a whole subframe assembly. once you get that on the ground just seperate the trans and pull the engine out. putting it back in is alot harder if you don't have a lift to work on.

I do agree it would be easier but I did read a bit on line and it says it can be done just that is is a pain in the butt.
