Default Engine removal...leave or detach transmission?

Ok guys, I figure the drivetrain swap guys would be the best to ask.

I need to remove my engine and drop my H6 in for fitament checks. I need to get a concensus on what way is easier, leave the tranny attatched and pull the whole thing, or detach the tranny and only pull the engine.

Keep in mind, I am not leaving the motor in at this point, it is coming back out again.

If it matters, I have a STi six speed in the car currently.

So, far, I have one person saying to pull it with the tranny for balance and so you dont have to deal with the bell housing bolts and clutch fork, etc...

I need input, please vote and explain your choice please, tricks and tips are very welcome.

thanks!

Ben

lol, i just realized that it makes no sense to pull the tranny cause i need to check fit of the pipes with it in.

carry on, but if you want to make a case of just pulling it for others future reference, let me know

I say let a sleeping dog lie. If you wake it up unnecessarily, it may end up biting you.

Dude,
If the 6spd swap occurred in the last year or so, tranny to engine bolts will be a total non-issue. Just pull the engine. The throwout fork takes like 10 minutes. The engine to tranny bolts another 5 minutes with air tools. At this point I can remove an engine in about an hour and a half without anyone else around. I can't imagine any good reason for removing the tranny unless it was coming out for good...

yea, I need to start using air tools, which I have an air rachet I plan to use, I hope that will make quick work of all the bolts.

I wonder if it would make it easier to remove the tranny guide studs at the bottom? thoughts.

I would leave the two studs in there. It doesn't really help to remove the engine by taking the studs off. Besides, to take the studs off, you've got to take the axles out (if you do it before the engine is out of the car). If you're just removing the engine, there's no reason to undo the axles.
