u-pipe removal to get to throttle bodies
cycl. heads at Lowells , stinger is out with d-plate installed and holeshot kit tapped, taking out TBs for next mod, can they be removed WITHOUT HAVING TO REMOVE UPPER EXCHAUST? those bolts on the backside are a PITA , can,t get leverage. I think i can reach everything(silencer cover, bolt on each side, fuel line, AT sensor,tubing from silencer , like to hear what exp. you guys had?

C`mon Dave... again technically no, but:
assuming your installing VF3`s you would want more room for the first time doing this...
if you want to make it easier for yourself to be able to see what`s going on and work more comfortably then remove the U-pipe. Be prepared, have a new gasket ready, read the service manual, follow the torque specs upon assy.
it`s easy once you get into it and understand how it comes out.
you will then have plenty of room to do whatever.
Billie knows these ski`s inside and out and can do anything blindfolded...
you can too with patience and understanding on how to go about it...

It can be done, I have installed VF-III's in an EFI without removing the U-Pipe. It is not easy, but can be done. As far as removing the U-pipe goes, the rear bolt is easily removed with a deep or swivel socket and extension, not hard at all.

went to Sears picked up a few more 14mm adapters and extensions, and got it off from the lower exchaust leading into exchaust manifold (4 bolts)NOW I CAN REACH EVERYTHING,there's 3 stacked gaskets, just lube them or replace them?
