Well you need a fairly large shop press to remove all the bearings and gears. I used a 4ton one and it did not work out so well, then i got access to a nice 30ton one and it work out great.
A STRONG t-45 torx bit.....i broke 7 until i got a 32 buck snap on one.....even still i needed to drill out 3 of the 7 torx bolts that connect the 5th gear chamber of the tranny to the rest of the gear box.
The rest involves a lots of diagrams showing what goes where so you can remeber where everything goes. That is about it!

thats a camry tranny, it's a little different from a +93 tranny such as were the shifter lever is. You have to remove the pin in the shifter lever to get that part out and some unlucky peeps like me is having a wicked time trying to get it out whoohoo....

Use a pin punch and a hammer and it comes off in two seconds.

Most tranny screws are put together with locktite as well. Use a small hand propane or map gas torch for a couple of seconds and they will loosen up fine. (best secret to any locktite removal)
