Electric Impact Wrench or Air?

Hey Oppo Wrenchers

So I’ve decided to finally buy an impact wrench. I am buying one in anticipation of doing the timing belt and seals on my Mazdas. I already have the Ridgid X4 kit of tools (drill, driver, circular saw, etc.) and they sell an impact wrench for the set. So that’s my first consideration. But I also have a 3 gallon porter cable pancake air compressor that can reliably make 150 psi. So I am also thinking about an air gun. The air gun is catching my eye since they also seem to be a little cheaper. I wrench probably about ten times a year on cars.

What say you Oppo? Air or Electric? If you say air, what gun do you recommend? My budget is around 150.
