(You need to remove it from the car before performing what I described above)
REALLY????? If your going to waste all of that time to remove the OS. just replace the damn thing! They go bad all of the time! I can do them in under an hour! Don't clean it out!!! WASTE OF TIME! I know my time is worth money. Don't remove the intake manifold either! I will get pictures next time I have one come in the shop, And i'll do a fast and simple write up.. Oh and the fuel lines and rail don't need to be removed.
