Know this is not the same motor and is not exactly the same, but should be pretty similar, and should at least give you a little idea.

I've replaced a trans in a 2002 3.8. Get a trans jack and it will be much easier. Also not sure if you are changing it with the car on a hoist or not. I didn't have a hoist so we dropped the cradle and unbolted the trans and slid it out with the engine held up.
