The motor hoist is an item which is used to lower and raise the engine in and out of the engine bay. It connects to the engine block with 2x10mm bolts. It is found in the garage in the player's home in the beginning of the game. Unlike most other items, it cannot be picked up and put in a vehicle, it can only be slid around the garage floor, similar to the floor jack.
The hoist can be lowered by pressing, and raised by pressing . A clicking sound can be heard when the engine is at a suitable position to be bolted in. It can only be connected once the headers are attached to the block.
