If you remove the hood then removing the radiator won't be necessary. And if you're removing the trans as well, then take the engine and trans out as one. If you're not doing anything with the trans then just leave it in.
I don't have a Mustang anymore. Instead, I have a wife and kids. Still trying to find a way to have a Mustang and a happy wife. Any ideas?

nah im not touching the trans except for a new throwout bearing. If i leave the trans in, will i be able to slide the engine forward enough off of the input shaft of the trans and still clear the radiator??
In the time it will take you to get to the bolts holding the tranny on the motor, it will be much easier to pull it out as 1. Every time I pull mine, I pull everything. One thing I do is this, take drive shaft off at diff, zip tie it(or what ever it takes so it doesn't come out of tranny) so you don't make a mess with all the fluid. +1 on removing the radiator, it's simple to pull and a lot less frustating then having to replace it.
So i've gotten to the point where i'm about to remove the radiator, but i'm not sure that it would be worth it, because it looks like the brake proportioner(i think thats what it is) would still be in the way. See pic below.I really dont want to remove that, but is there something that i'm missing here?
Thats your ABS unit, and its easier to squeeze around that then try not to mess your radiator up. Afew bolts/electrical connector gets the fan and 2 bolts gets the radiator, half hour max.

I will be doing the same thing to do my PI Head and Intake swap and possible headers. Where is the best place to rent the equipment I need, i.e. cherry picker, engine stand.
Also what is involed in removing the engine. Is it hard to release to from the Tranny?
As far as the equipment it's just as good to buy it, usually can get a desent deal on it somewhere even if it's online. Seperating the tranny from engine is easy depending on how you choose to do it. If it's in the car, it's harder of course, out a lot easier.
