Hello and thank you for your question, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you today.

The 4.6 is actually not bad to replace, you need to remove the Y-pipe for clearance and the manifold will lower down and out. See the factory steps HERE. Soak the stripped stud down real well with some PB blaster before you try to remove it .
