Good luck. Mine came off and went back on with an air leak (by competant non-skyline mechanic)....fixed now by skyline mechanic. Check the locating dowels are right when refitting... they are not all the same length.

It cant be that hard. I have another stock manifold here I was gonna get polished but decided to order the Greddy plenum. I was checking it out and would think if you had an 8th grade mechanics level you could do it no prob.

I'm sure I just jinxed myself by saying that:p

yes it looks easy to do
that is the top bolts on the plenum
try getting to all the bolts and all the small pipe work under it
you cant get to it from under the car.
also there are lots to come off under the plenum
i have done the turbos on my car and think they are easy to do when you compare the work needed when doing the plenum.
try to do it then
report back then tell me what grade of
mechanic is needed to do the job

On top of what Keith says: bolts (top AND bottom ones) need to be tightened with a specific torque preferably........:D and there's a LOT of them in places hard ro reach EVEN WHEN THE ENGINE IS OUT !!
