Default Fuel injector change….

I've seen the tutorials and ready to do it. It seems to be a bit of a pain is it easier to take off the Intake Manifold first. I have the gaskets to replace on the TGV I just don't want to do anything unnecessary. I may need to take the IM off anyway which is why I ask.

I do it in less than an hour but I do alot of them. Scotty is right it,s unnecessary to take the im off but if it is already off it's much easier.

Unbolt the fuel rails and the side fuel rail bolts on the tgvs. Pull up, slide out the olds injectors, lube up new injector o rings, slide in new injectors, rebolt everything.

do NOT forget the bolts on the front of the tgv's and do NOT bend the fuel rails

and removing the manifold really does NOTHING for you as far as removing the injectors...it is a pointless waste of time and unnecessary complication that yeilds many fail points on disassembly and reassembly
