Then you are missing the obvious choice. You want to cut the front structure off and slide the engine out the hole. 10X easier than lifting it or dropping it. All you need is a sawz-all (or plasma cutter) and 20 minutes. I'd post a picture of the few times I've done it but you probably get the idea...

only body and interrior parts

this way when ever my car breaks down (only 74k on my 90) i will already have low mileage parts on hand

everything that is better about this car will go on my car
but im just gonna stick the enging and tranny in my garage and let it sit there for a few years or so idk and i would like to have a small turbo set up for it before i put it in

i dont gotta worry about short nose crank no more

Sorry, I should have been more clear. I did mean small pieces and interior pieces. If you are is it black interior?
