Hmm...maybe one of the gearheads can chime in here, I'm not sure if the intake configuration is different...I don't want to give you the wrong instructions!!!

jhill...

From what I can remember...

I didn't actually have to unhook much... I undid the sensors first (all 3), then I unscrewed the front two screws holding the front of the throttle plate on. After that, the throttle plate would rotate back enough that I didn't need to undo the bolt holding the back of the plate to the exhaust heatshield, which is all well and good cause I damn near stripped that nut trying to get it off...

After that I simply disconnected the throttle cables (just pull off the retainers, a screwdriver'll do the trick), then took off the three primary nuts holding the throttle body to the gasket/intake. I recommend a deep socket to do this, or else you're gonna have to get real creative with your hands to get in there. Then just go in reverse to reassemble.

Let me know if you need pics and I'll be glad to. Just gotta get my gf'* camera.
