High School Auto Teacher Looking For Advise

I'm a high school auto shop teacher and wanted to ask for some advise before my students and I get started swapping the engine on our 05 Touareg with a 4.2. I thought I would ask if you guys had any input since I'm sure most of you work on these vehicles. We have had this SUV for two years and finally have the funds to fix it. We have Alldata and it says to drop it through the bottom but looking around some folks remove the engine through the top by removing the lock carrier. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

Bottom drop is easier IMHO drop subframe with engine, trans, and suspension.

Lifting the car off the motor and trans is easiest with a lift, if your school doesn't have a lift or can't afford to tie up the lift pull out the front.
