Since I will have the intake manifold off, I'm wondering what else people think is a good idea to do/upgrade at the same time.
So the latter, yeah that sucks bud, sometimes they are just that much of a pain.
Either way, doing whatever you'd want to do "in the mean-time" of the manifold removal is exactly what everyone else is talking about. The silicone hoses, TGV porting, Manifold porting (core swaps from Grimspeed are quick things).
IMO, I don't like the hard pipe because it utilizes a standard coupler at the end and when the oil gets to it and contaminates it, they slip off...well, my experience with APS hard pipes (not installed, just fixed) haha.
