Angry Question on engine removal (07 Milan, 2.3L)

I'm replacing the 2.3L engine on my '07 Milan.

I'm having to take the engine out of the top because I can't drop the subframe due to a stripped balljoint bolt. That being said, is it easier to take out the engine with the tranny, or disconnect the transmission and take the engine out by itself?
I found this guide, but there are some things that are different that are causing pain: Mazda 6 and Ford Fusion 2.3L Engine Swap | Happy Wrenching
I also found this video which is the reason I am questioning it:

I am also having some trouble taking the exhaust manifold out. Any suggestions on it?

Thanks in advance
