Re: Looking for options
Just take your time. Get yourself a piece of cardboard, poke enough holes for the intake manifold bolts, and put them in order as you take them out. That way you don't mix up the bolts and the ones that are studs. Be careful with the injector connector sticking out of the rocker box. Easy to break one putting the intake back on if you aren't watching, and the last thing you want to do is have to pull an injector and replace because you broke the connector.
I'm sure you've already read it'll take some cranking to get it to fire up after you get it back together. It'll more than likely hit when you first try to crank it, but will go dead and take some time to get the air forced through and get oil pressure back through the whole system. 20-30 second cranks with a break between. Don't be afraid to keep turning it over longer than you think you should.
I'm sure there are other little tidbits....just aren't crossing my mind right now.
