In the process of sorting the engine bay out.
I would like to remove the plenum for a bit of Autosolve treatment...
Can anyone tell me how difficult it is to remove, anything to be aware of and roughly how long would it take... ?
Thanks

Spoons, if you want to remove it just for cosmetic purposes then i'd leave it alone if i were you..

Its an absolute mother of a job.

Ummmm.. It is just for cosmetic reasons, car runs sweet not keen on the idea of possibly introducing irratic idling.
Didnt realise there were a good number of connections below it either, I think that I will try touching up the few marks in the black paint first.

Cheers Gents

First time I did it, It was a nightmare, But would do it again as I know what I'm looking for now. New skin a girls little hand(hehe).

Toook mine out for polishing and was worth it. First time took four hours in and out with a lot os swearing and missing tools down the engine bay somewhere.

Thanks all for comments, altho its bugging me as I have done most of the engine bay now, I have decided to leave well alone at least until I've seen a complete out of car RB26 to see what's involved.
