Hey guys. I'm in the middle of a head gasket replacement on my 96 RS. I've got most of the tear down around the engine done and I'm down to the timing components and finishing the intake manifold which has been the most pain in the a$$ so far. I've cracked the top bolts loose but I have literally no wiggle room so I figured I'd look around and see if there were any tricks online. I Read that if I unbolt the two stays, that the head and intake will come off as one, so I don't need to even bother with the intake manifold bolts. What?! Is it really that easy?!
