Top part of the manifold? You going to change it from the bottom? :)

You should have about 10 8mm(I think, they might be 10mm) bolts holding 
on the valve cover. The three on the right also hold down your Ignition 
wiring loom. This is one job that IS as easy as it looks.

Are you talking about head gasket? If so, ignore what I just said, and 
plan on spending a day. (afternoon anyway...)
