I have pulled lower intakes without pulling the distributor, but it is a real pain. If your going that far, you might as well remove the injectors. It would be easier than taping.

not that hard, just takes a certain twist and angle and it slides out

just pull it off the motor pull the injectors out

make sure before you pull the distrubitor you pull the cap off and turn the crank over till the dizzy (rotor) points stright back then you can have it where it needs to be when you put it back in.

You don't have pull the dizzy out just remove the cap and base, the lower will have a good amount of room to be yanked them and no having to reset timing

just have to pick the back up and angle it out to the passenger side, its easy, you can leave the thermostat housing on and everything, it even worked with the eddy performer i had which is much bulkier than the stocker

theres 2 bolts on each side holding the fuel rails to the lower mani, after you take those out yes it just pulls out

once the rail is removed yes they pull out but the pintle caps are proly brittle and may break but they could proly used replacing anyway.

the little caps on the tip of the injector, helps spread out the fuel spray i thinks, when me and sean swapped my intake out half of them broke and it made my car idle funny, but ran fine
