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 repairWink. 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.

Ok now on to the repair, I have loaded a VERY detailed repair guide for you here, open the link I loaded to below and be sure to print or save the file for your use, the file is 1.07MB and 30 pages long.
