The consensus is that it is easier to remove them as a unit. Getting the clutch release aligned and working properly is hard enough with both parts out of the car, I can't imagine doing it with the engine on a jack under the car.

A few things I forgot to mention. Disconnect the battery and remove the wiring from the starter. Also don't forget to lube the guide tube for the clutch release once the engine and trans are separated.
