PI swap in progress

Well I finally collected all the parts and started my swap yesterday. I bought some ported PI heads and new PI cams. Bought a used PI intake manifold and tapped the hole for the sensor. So far, disassembly has been a b****. Cai, tb, plenum, alternator took about 15 minutes. But it took all day to get the fuel rails, intake manifold, and 1 valve cover off (passenger side) the valve cover itself took an hour. They make the bolts so hard to get to. Idk how im going to get the drivers side off. Is there a way to do it without moving the fuse box/master cylinder? Hopefully ill have the npi heads pulled by tomorrow noon. Any pointers or tips are appreciated!

I have everything torn down to the heads right now. But if you have a una-wiggle as the Air Force calls it, or a universal socket, it should be fairly easy to do. Just gotta take some time and dont lose patience. Think of how badass itll be when its done! Im pulling my entire engine so its definitely easier to do it that way

Nice man, sounds like a total PITA but it'll definitely be worth it. Where there's a will there's a way lol.
