there is no way you need to take the intake manifold or exhaust manifold either one (first post didn't specify). Fuel rail? Injectors? damn.
no it wasnt nessicary to completly remove the fuel rail, the intake was needed cause i wasnt about to snake my hands under their to remove it, i moved the fuel rail because it makes it easier to have less things in the way to work on something like the starter, have u seen the location of an e36 starter? its a real nasty spot located directly underneath the intake and unless u got stick arms which i dont then there was no way i was snaking my arms in there to change the starter
