Any tricks for getting an intake off an engine while it's still in the car... everything is off, every bolt, hose, etc... and it just won't budge. Gotta get it off ASAP, the new intake is on it's way and I've got 1 snapped bolt to tend too.

TIA

Use a putty knife and slide it between the block and the intake in a couple spots. This will break the rtv bonds and help to get the intake off

Hit it a couple of times with a hammer that will brake it loose. then you can pry it up with a large screwdriver or pry bar.

Note: If it is the cast intake it is heavy so be careful.

Used the prybar suggestion from above instead of a hammer handle... came right up. And the next dilemna will be posted soon (for anyone playing at home or work). ::
