Hello and thank you for using just answer. This is a VERY big job, you will be sick of this car by the time you are done with this repair. I do have a few tips for you here first.
-I recommend you have a VERY long extension and a 14mm swivel socket, the 2 bolts that hold the starter in face the transmission and I have found that the easiest way to remove/install the 2 bolts is by removing the rear transmission mount once the intake is off and reach the swivel socket up to the starter from the tailshaft area of the undercarriage.
-Tip 2- be sure to order new intake gaskets first. I recommend you use compressed air and clean out the engine area and under the intake as best as possible before you start. The engine collects a lot of dirt under the intake and the valves will be directly exposed to contamination once these intakes are removed.
