    You don't have to remove the intake but it is much easier. Honestly, it isn't that hard to remove it. My first time it took two hours now I an down to taking it out and installed in about 30 minutes or so.

    no need to pull intake just make sure you bought the socket to replace it..

    I broke mine and I didn't need a socket it turned by hand. I just used two fingers in the whole and turned it.

    job is much easier with intake off.....pulling the intake isn't that bad at all. I'd much rather pull the intake than do the brakes or something like that.

    Pulling the intake is a piece of cake.

    Fuel rails pop right out and can be laid off to the side without disconnecting the fuel line.

    It's a dry intake so no antifreeze to deal with. Lift it up and out, probably only weighs 3 lbs. It's the easiest intake on an engine I've ever pulled, no water, no gaskets or gasket sealant to mess with, really just all around easy,,,,did I say it was easy?

    I'd much rather pull the intake than try to fit my arms under the cowl.

    This - intake can be off/on and job done in 30-45 mins vs slashing the hands and arms with the cowl while blindly trying to get the OPSU off/on. Also have fun looking for the wire harness if it falls down away from the OPSU.

    Just pull the intake and be done with it. You can't screw anything up because there is nothing to screw up.
