Hey guys,

Has anyone removed and replaced the stock end castings on their car without removing the engine?  I need to change the intake boots on my manifold and would really like it to be simple.  Give me some tips on how to get it done

I believe it can be done, whether easily I'm not sure.......

My Son has done it a few times as the boots He bought didn't last long.

I know He was cursing... so it may not be too easy...

 

undo the two intake nuts on either side of the engine...

undo the clamps on the rubber boots....

and turn the cast piece around and up and out...

The hard bit may be replacing the boots??

 

as My engine is a single port I can't really comment on how hard it is..

I'm sure some other members of the Forum can help...
