plan on replacing the vacuum hoses in the back, and the intake manifold gasket. you might be able to get the vacuum hoses loose in the back, but I had to cut mine and then cut them off with a knife. you will have to take a ton of stuff loose so plan on having a label maker or some tape nearby to mark what is what, particularly the o2 sensors. honestly most of the stuff is designed to fit in only its particularly plug, but is still safe. I labeled all of mine with numbers as i was taking them loose and then wrote down a list of each number an what it was so that when I put it all back together I could check stuff off the list as I went and make sure I didnt miss anything.
It was a bit of a pain to do, but dont let that deter you.
Just make certain the mating surfaces are CLEAN. On Dave's pic, you can see some smeg on the lower intake that should be cleaned off before the new gasket goes on. Also wouldn't hurt to buy some M8x1.25-20mm bolts. I had to destroy my intake bolts to remove it.
Note: Someone check me on that. It's been a while and I don't have the bolts/package in front of me.
