Things to have on hand:
1- intake gaskets
2- 4 rubber "o" rings (throttle body to air horns)
3- Rubber support bushing
4- hyplomar gasket goo
5- 5 series paper intake gaskets
6- female torx (sp?) socket (number 6 I think)
7- 2 or 3 of the funny torx nuts and bolts that are used here, some of them may be damaged and are due to be replaced
Things to do:
1- remove intake bellows
2- unplug battry, you will work around the alternator
3- unbolt the rubber support bushing from the bottom of the air box
4- remove the rubber hose from the front lower end of the air box
5- remove the airbox from the throttle bodies
6- remove fuel rail (pull hard when you get to the rail it self)
7- unplug TPS and Idle Control Valve electrical look for stuff I forgot to say to disconnect
8- remove throttle bodies from the head (a bunch of torx bolts)
9- remove the intake gaskets from the throttle bodies
10- clean, clean, clean, but do not scratch the aluminum head or throttle bodies
11- use Hyplomar on the mating surfaces of the head/paper gasket/intake block (gasket)/throttle bodies. Go easy with the stuff, it will squish out as you tighten the torx nuts down
