    removing intake manifold??

    so i have every bolt of of my intake manifold besides that sneaky little SOB that hides underneath. any tips on how to get it out? its a really tight spot, and im guessing i might need a specialty tool, which isnt a problem but i need to know. thanks for the help.

    Which ski? And do you mean underneath the manifold? If that is what you are talking about, you do not have to take them out. Just the 7 screws on top, then pull it off.

    yeah, maybe i wasnt pulling up hard enough, ill give it a try. its on a 2002 GTX.

    another question. how the heck can you get water into the engine. can you give me all the possibilities.

    flooding the hull, towing too fast and without clamping the pump hose....starting the hose before you turn on the engine while flushing, and last but not least leaving it out in the rain with the manifold off.

    so lets say, that you turned on the hose before the engine was on? after you drain the intake manifold and mufflers. what left to take care of?

    how long did you leave the hose running for with the engine off? you actually have a slight "grace period" where the hose can be running with the motor off...

    anyway, empty the waterbox, empty the intake manifold, disconnect the rubber elbow attached to the supercharger inlet and see if there's water in there, that's pretty much it...

    remove all the spark plugs and press the start button and any water left in the cylinders will shoot out thru the spark plug holes... maybe use a tiny little tube and stick it into the spark plug hole first and suck water out with a vaccuum... bc if you filled the cylinders all the way up to the head that'll be alot of water pressure still getting squeezed out thru the spark plug hole
