k.....here is the deal.....

Take the doghouse out......get the air intake out (the airbox and the air intake all the way to the turbo)

there is an air baffle in there...unbolt it and position it to the side. This would also be a good time to replace the fuel filter because you need to have that baffle position to the side to replace it anyways...

get the valve covers off. The passanger side is the pain.......the valve cover will come out without taking the motor mount out though...

once your there...take the harnesses and valve covers out......unbolt the injectors....etc....and take all of the injectors but the front three on the passanger side out. To do this....take the lower hold down bolt off of hte injector...slide the hold down bracket up over the upper bolt...and pry the injetctors out....

now here is the trick...the shop manual says to take the drivers side motor mount out to get the passanger side injectors out......you dont need to do that. Leave the drivers side one completely as it is....and just take the nuts off of the passager side motor mount where it goes through the engine cradle.... Jack the motor up as high as you can and then pry the three front passanger side ones out.....

install is reverse of this.....i always just leave the motor jacked up and start with the three tough ones. Tap the injectors in place gently with a small rubber mallot til you can get the hold down over the upper bolt and get the lower one started.....torque the injector hold down bolt to 12 foot pounds
