    i'm not sure how the RXP is.... will it slide out enough and make it past the gas tank? if so, no problem go for it....

    i imagine if ur stock air box was still in the ski the intercooler wouldn't come out, but with all that removed should be easy enough?

    worst case scenario... it's like 7 torx bolts i think... remove them, pull the manifold back, slide the IC out, and slap the manifold back on...

    You have to remove it because the intercooler will hit the gas tank when you go to slide it out.

    Thumbs up

    I`ve done mine (RXP) with it in place and without. Unbolted = less chance of buggering up the o-rings. You just have to take the bolts out of the maniflod and slightly move it back. Its very easy. Looks hard but once you do it you`ll see just how pathetically easy it is.

    I was just curious as my 06 RXP with the old factory airbox out of the way looks like there is more than enough room. All I need to do is get it out than use Rivas block so at least I dont have to reinstall it.
    Thanks,
    Mike

    In the end, it is actually easier to remove the intake manifold. You spend more time hassling with getting the IC out and the blockoff in than you would by just removing the 7 intake manifold bolts and loosening the two on bottom.

    on my 2005 RXP the ic slid right out - I did not loosen anything I thought the same thing - maybe some gas tank alignment is slightly different - nothing to lose.

    Mine just barely hit the tank, as it was almost out, I just used 2 hands and muscled it out without loosening or removing anything. Nothing got damaged either.
