It's pretty much unhook electrical and vacuum if any unbolt and remove. We have no torque specs for the bolts, just don't tighten them like a gorilla, about 15 ft lbs would be about enough. Make sure the egr passages are not clogged in both directions. We have no pics of that.

If it's a 3.1L then it's by the throttle body on rear of engine. It wil be a round looking thing with an electrical connector at top it may have a wrinkled like pipe going to it on the bottom if it's a 2.4L or 2.2. Lit doesn't have one
