This is assuming your system is totally empty. System capacity is 8 quarts. I would go 4 quarts of the antifreeze, then 4 quarts of water, top it off, run it to operating temperature, and top it off again. Then check the freeze point and make sure its around -34F. Dont forget to open the bleeder valve on the intake manifold while your filling it-- and shut it off again when coolant pours out.

If your pulling it from the top, I would say remove the plenum. It gives you better access to the rear of the engine, and the trans bolts. It also gives you more options as far as attaching a chain and lifting the engine out.

However, if your dropping the engine/cradle assembly out the bottom of the car, then leave the plenum attached. With the whole front end sitting on the floor, engine, trans, and all, everything is accessible.
