replacing injector cups

i have bought the special tool to remove them and to set them in, but can i just pull valve cover off and do them or do i need to remove the head off? also is any pieces going to fall in? will the cup break when pulling cup out?

You can just pull the valve cover. Stick a penny in the Injector cup when pulling them and put some grease on top of it to catch the shavings. (I think it's a penny, Havent' done it for a while)

Yup, and you HAVE TO MAKE SURE the seat is clean and dry before installing the new cup. Use the bup brush and a long skinny flat head screwdriver.
