Both ways are about equal. Does any other maintenance need to get done on it? Rear main seal? Clutch? Pull the motor and do anything that needs done.

Thank you for the input I will more than likely go with pulling the motor

Personally I'd pull it.

You want a high performance standard volume pump btw. IIRC the Melling unit costs $40. I'd also put an ARP shaft in while I was at it but that's just me.

Dropping the K is a royal PITA and you are working under the car and everything sucks. The way the pickup is in the motor, you'll think it is clear but the pan will catch on the pickup and then not clear the K and you'll want to light the whole thing on fire. Pulling a motor/trans out of a Fox is pretty much just a matter of dropping the mid pipe out, undoing the motor mount nuts and then unhooking a few coolant lines and electrical and out she comes.
