I've pulled many engines over the years (primarily straight 6 or V but never this particular one.

I've watched several videos and it appears straight forward, however, my one question is can the engine be pulled leaving the A/T in place or do you have to pull them together?

Curious because if I don't have to pull the A/T and can leave it in place I imagine it would save a good deal of time. I appreciate any insight you can offer.
