the plenum? Where the air horns bolt into the plenum (8 bolts), it looks as though it'd be pretty tough to get to the bottom bolts (let alone get a torque wrench in there). To get to the ICV, would I be better off removing the 6 bolts on the other side of the air horns closest to the fuel rail (driver's side of the fuel rail)? Seems like the better option to me. Where do the 4 O-rings go, plenum side or fuel rail side? I'm also planning on stripping and painting my plenum while I've got it off, so I'll need to completely separate the plenum from the airhorns to do this. Any other gaskets or O-rings I'll need? Sorry if these questions seem a bit dumb, but I haven't removed these items before....once I do it I'll understand how everything goes together. The final antenna is loose. Someone said to pop the plastic cap off, exposing a nut that can be tightened. I just went down and popped the cap off, and the nut is recessed in the antenna base, I obviously cant get to it. How exactly are you supposed to tighten this thing. Thanks for all your help!
