Yes 3 bolts I believe they are 10mm if I remember correctly. I used a 1/4 drive ratchet and 6 inch extension to remove mine. Before you disconnect the harness from the pcm make sure you disconnect the batteries. You have to remove both negatives from the batteries. I suggest you do this first.

If you are installing a chip, make sure, as already said, the batteries are unhooked and key out of ignition. We had another member fry his PCM by not doing this, don't want it to be a second.
