what am I missing - cant get intake manifold out

I've started my oil cooler/EGR cooler/STC fitting/blue spring job.

I've removed stuff down to the intake manifold.

I've got the 8 bolts/studs down both legs out, the two near the EGR inlet, the metal heater tube is loose, the two bolts through the [not heater I mean] FAN shroud are out, the fuel line bracket bolt is out.

I can lift the legs a little and it feels like I can pivot a little around a point a little forward of where the oil filter bowl would be. But it won't come up at the front.

Is there an o-ring I need to pop free or some kind of connection I'm missing?

yep, those wouldn't have been too obvious to me but I watched SrMasterTech numerous times and got that from him. I have the factory manual on CD also, but it isn't helping.

Did you separate the EGR cooler from the intake and the up pipe.

They do but sometimes it will get stuck on the turbo mount and all the other places

the way it feels it's like there's one bolt still holding the intake to the engine under the front middle, or a little to the driver's side

okay, I should have been more specific-
I've removed the turbo, pedestal, turbo drain, filter housing, EGR valve, injector harness, I can't see anything holding the intake manifold to the engine

OK looking at my spare intake there are three bolts in the front two for the fan shroud and one for the fuel line.
16 total bolt go through the intake to block on the legs.
3 on the alternator with another one on the collant line a small bolt there.

Only other thing I can think of is you still have the EGR cooler line connected to the oil cooler housing you need to disconnect that off the cover and make sure the metal line doesn't run under the turbo pedestal if so take the turbo out not sure on that did mine years ago.
