You can take the pistons out with the engine still in the car. The head must be completely off. then jack the car up and put it on jack stands. Take the oil pan off, along with the oil pick up tube, and everything else blocking the crank. (DON'T LOOSEN THE CRANK). Then take the nuts off the connecting rods. Next grab something long and skinny to put in the cylinder to push the piston up and out. Might have to tap it with a hammer to get it to move out. Don't hit too hard though.
