My guess would be:

1) drop the exhaust system
You will need to do that to get to the exhaust manifolds.

2) remove the exhaust manifolds
The exhaust manifolds because they cover up the motor mounts.

3) unbolt the motor mount from the frame
Once the engine is free to wiggle around, you can lift it.

4) use a cherry picker (engine hoist) to lift up on the engine
If you still have throttle cables and other wiring connected, you may want to unbolt one motor mount and raise one side at a time, replace that motor mount, then set it back down before tackling the other side.

5) take out the bolts from the engine block.
