Putting the IM back in place is quite easy! Only 4 bolts and 4 nuts that 
hold it in place. But taking it off was quite a chore. When I finally did 
pry it loose, the IM gaskets half stuck to the head and half to the IM 
bending it out of shape. It was stuck on good! You need to remove the fuel 
rail also to get to the 4 nuts.
