Yes, remove it to polish and port it. It'* really messy, and you don't want that in your engine. If you have the tools, it'* mainly your time and sanding drums. If you don't have the tools, I don't suggest trying it. If you just want to clean up the outside, that can be left on the engine. Just disconnect the battery because you will be working near the alt.

The fuel rails will be in the way a bit. Just take your time.
