Does the manifold need to be removed in order for this to be installed ?

Nope, Drill and tap(coat drill bit and tap with grease to collect shavings) go slow and take your time

Mine's in the pass. side up-pipe, about where the egr cooler used to be. It's a tad further away from the valves, but when the pipe arrived and came out of the box it seemed like an easier solution - all the machining and welding done and cleaned up before it ever got near the engine. No chance of getting drill/tap turnings where they don't belong that way.

No, but there has been those who have done it with the manifold removed.

Biggest thing is start with the smallest bit, and work your way up. Take your time, and get a pencil magnet and vacuum up there to get all the shavings. Go it right and you won't have a turbo issue down the line.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Mine is by the #8. drill and tap in place. I used a vacuum and magnet to make sure no shavings went thru. Have had it on there for about 5k now and no issues.

After drilling it out i used a magnet with a paper clip with a L shape on the end clip taped to the magnet run in the hole to remove any steel then tap the hole going only half way with the tap so you do not over size the hole, do not use grease. (the steel is soft so be carefull) Take is slow.
