not sure of the differences in other years, some could be major.
according to the dealer, they allow FOUR hours for their tech's to do this!!! that doesnt include the hot-tanking. Ive seen on youtube where guys have burned out the soot on their four bangers...with a turbo torch and airgun... i just dont like that idea at all. theres already enough that could go wrong while doing this on a V10, why risk warping a manifold?
It took me about 4 hours to take them off, I was extra careful, and still messed up a coolant hose.
