I Found that you can leave the intake manifold on just make sure you take the 3 bolts out that are underneath the intake manifold.
At step 4. Take head and entire intake with fuel rail off as one piece. Disconnect hoses and electric. There are three bolts #10 on underside of intake canister Two brackets. One has one nut. the other has two. have to get from underside but easy to get at. then pull head and intake as one and bolts to separate are easy to get at and work on when on the bench. When done put it back together and reinstall as one piece. So much easier. Great post, but thought everyone should know this one.
