    Oh shoot, the injectors need to be removed for that? Job looks messier by the minute.

    Default no they dont....

    that's just a pic i took when i was trying to do my headgasket, its just clearer than if the intake manifold were (fixed) normally in position. no removal is necessary, just small hands.
