Pulling the engine with the TC still installed, may possibly distort the front pump on the transmission. If I had to separate the engine and transmission with the TC installed, I'd want to do this with both out of the car. When doing this in the car, the engine needs to be pulled at an angle, which will lead to the tweaking of the trans pump.
