pull engine or cab

I have a customer that wants me to stud his 6.0 heads while doing a head gasket job. I have plenty of years as a tech so I'm capable, just have never done this to a 6.0. He wants it done this weekend, so I'm needing an answer asap. Should I remove the engine or pull off the cab. I have a 2 post lift, a heavy engine hoist, and a overhead crane. so the tools to complete either job I have. Just wanting to know which is more time efficient for someone who has not done this job before.

Thank you.
