    When I replace my spark plugs does the entire upper intake need to come off or just the tank.

    I thought it was just the surge tank but it's been too long to remember for me. If you can get to all the rear coils you should be able to contort and get the plugs

    Hrm. Picture would help, but are you just trying to get to the spark plugs? If so, you won't need to remove the valve cover.

    If the valve cover is leaking you just need to remove the bolts around it. But if someone has already been in it, they may have used a sealant which may require some force to separate...
