Removal

How in the world do I get the fuel rail off without destroying it?
Have to change a few stupid gaskets

After a few hours of work while being at work I'm this far on the way.

Do I got to take the lower intake manifold off to manage to remove the heads? Anyone got a "trick" up their sleve?

Yes the lower intake has to come off.

There are 6-8 bolts holding the fuel rails in I believe. I can't remember exactly from when I pulled them off my engine.

I believe there is some kind of hose or metal line that runs from the front of the lower intake to the back.

I know the fuel rail and plugs just pull right out of the lower intake though once you get the bolts and the lines out of the way.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

I've removed 4 bolts so far (2 on each side), and I've started to disconnect the harnes.
Do I disconnect the fuel rain on the passenger side (rubber hose to metal) or rear of the engine?

I'm happy for any response

Drain the coolant below the thermostat before removing the lower intake.

I really wish it was just to snap it on/off. Crap, now it's getting a little late too, 2:41am.

If anyone give me a how-to soon I'll go out and take that sucker off. Hey, better yet.

Free beer and food at my place, just come on over

I got everything off but the fuel rail. So I got to wait until monday to see if I can get that removal tool thingie. If I only had it I would get everything off today.

Just my luck

The tool is to disconnect the fuel lines also needed if you change your fuel filter.
