After the bolts IN the plenum have been taken out, simply pull up hard on the plenum. All thats holding it on now are the injectors.

Be carefull when pulling it up though, otherwise you may damage the bottom plastic nozzle on an injector.

No probs!

Yes disconnect the injector electrical connections, but like i said be careful with the bottom ends of the injectors that plug into the valley cover. They are easy to crack or chip the plastic nozzles.
