Remove the upper intake manifold (plenum) if your having difficulty taking it off, there are 2 support braces that hold it on, they are located on the backside of the engine, closest to the firewall. You will have to feel for the bolts, or use a mirror. I dont remember what size they are, I think they are 13, or 14 mm. Use a short socket and a ratchet. And dont get aggravated. They are a pain in the a$$ even for an experienced tech.
