Did a search...

I'm currently replacing the lower intake manifold on the '96 4.6.
Does the EGR tube have to be disconnected from the exhaust manifold? Is there any way around this?
If so, how do you get up there?? It seems impossible!

Thanks!

nope. just unbolted the tube to the egr valve and you can channel it out. bent a little bit out of way but not too much.

Remove the upper part of the intake and slide it out, then remove the alt and slide the lower part out, no need to remove the injectors and fuel rails either. piece of cake

Yeah, I got it done last night around 7pm.
I am amazed at how easy the job was. I mean, it was a pain to disconnect everything and label most of it, but the swap was very trouble-free.
I drove it around last night and it seems to be totally fine. I always expect something bad to happen after a job like that... I've messed a few things up in the past with my Fox cars.

I did the PI swap a couple weeks ago and didnt label a thing :) everything on the harness sits were it should. To be honest i dont know how you could really mess it up

the only thing i have ever labeled on a car is my voltage regualtor wiring on my 64 , before the alternator swap. other than that, no prob. but each their own . and the plastic intakes are way easy
