The BGB is pretty much sayin to take the motor out ...hahaha...

I read that all you need to do is take off the valve cover, and that gives you the clearance to get in there... but I dunno...

What did you do when swapping or changing injectors?

Unplug the injectors, unbolt the two bolts holding down the fuel rail.

Now you'll have limited space to maneuver but enough space to change all 4 injectors if you take your time.

I did this when I had two leaky injectors for 2 months- you could really smell the gas after a ride and parking inside a shop didn't help much either haha

Best way to do it is the to remove the valve cover first. Once you've done that, you will have tons of room to work with around the injectors. I've tried it both ways. Not removing the valve cover can cost you a lot of stress / time.

Don't forget to relieve fuel pressure. Unplug fuel pump connector or EFI fuse. Start the engine. Engine should die. Unscrew fuel filler cap (to releave pressure in fuel tank) just for the heck of it.
