Manifold removal

Does anyone have a good write up of how to remove the upper and lower manifold on our cars? I am sending it out soon to be ported. It looks to be a simple job but I want to make sure I'm not missing anything. YouTube didn't really supply enough info for me.

Its just a few bolts holding the upper on, but their is a coolant jacket (a rather large one) running through the middle of the lower portion that makes removal a little bit more than just a "simple job."

Should I drain the coolant first from the passenger side before taking off the lower portion?

Remove the Air Cleaner (ACL) outlet tube.
Disconnect the PCV tube quick connect coupling from the intake manifold.
Disconnect the Throttle Body (TB) electrical connector.
Disconnect Evaporative Emission (EVAP) tube from the EVAP canister purge valve.
Disconnect the EVAP canister purge valve electrical connector.
Disconnect the brake booster vacuum hose from the upper intake manifold tube.
Detach the wiring harness pin-type retainer from the rear of the upper intake manifold.
Remove the upper intake manifold support bracket bolt from the front of the RH cylinder head.
Loosen the 7 bolts and remove the upper intake manifold.

Lower gets more complicated!

Thanks! I managed to remove the top. Do you possibly have a diagram of the lower manifold removal?

Would anyone have an idea or a diagram of what the torque specs should be for the upper and lower manifold? Should have it back by this weekend.

Snug. Usually not more than 15 - 16 ft/lbs, which is pretty much just a little more than hand tight. The bolts are designed to snap to keep you from cracking the manifold, so they dont need to be super tight.

Would you recommend reusing the old gaskets or buying new ones? 2012 with 25k

They're fine. I would just place a small amount of engine oil on them, just enough to get them wet, when re installing. This just helps prevent them from drying out and cracking. Typically just wetting your finger and rubbing it along them is enough to do the trick.
