Yeah...you actually do have to remove all of those things. I rebuilt a supercharger on a 94 a few months ago and had to remove all those things also. It'* really not that bad. The serpentine belt is simply putting a ratchet or wrench of the tensioner pulley and pushing to relieve the tension and then slide the belt off. There is a diagram on the front cowl of the engine bay as to the path of the belt for reassembly. Alternator is only a few bolts....the heat sheild, another few bolts. So long as you mark the parts an write down things to remember how to get it back together. For the fuel rail, you'll see something that looks like a tire air cap. There is a little button there to remove the fuel pressure. The fuel rail is only a few bolts and then the injectors will pop out of their holes. Before putting the injectors back in their holes, wipe off the seals and put a small dab of oil on them to allow them to slide into place easier. Really...it'* very doable. If you can take off the intake, the other things are definately reasonable. If you want, you can paint the fuel rail and things when you have them off to make things look a little nicer.

sorry for being long-winder...again, good luck!

Wow its starting to sound easier and more fun! lol, I think maybe I'll paint the upper intake manifold if thats ok with you guys. Some high temp paint should do the trick right? Ive never seen anyone do this here, is that ok? And can I go ahead and remove the valve covers and paint those too? Oh and just one more question. Does anyone know what gaskets I'll be needing for my engine? Im guessing its an L27 and I'll probably just replace the gaskets for everything that I take off. Thanks!

Im on GMPARTSDIRECT.COM and Ive entered my ride info but are the gaskets and stuff listed the exact ones for my car or just some universal crap? Maybe it would be best to go to a dealership?

Oh sorry I wasnt sure if we had the same engine. Going to do some shopping today for everything so that I can get started Friday. So thats gaskets, tb cleaner, and probably some other junk that Id like to have since my parents are funding this whole operation.

Free mods, eh? keep dreamin...unless you feel like leaving your maf screen out.
You may want to replace your serpentine belt with a nice gatorback. New plugs probably won't hurt either.

Oh yeah! Have a set of NGK Iridium IX'* that I might as well get a gapping tool for and throw in unless 95naSTA still wants them. Will see if I can get a MAF screen at the dealer since mine is gone.

Don't bother with the MAF screen, if it runs fine without, you won't need one. Don't stress it .

The only way to buy a new MAF screen is to buy a complete TB, $350.
