Am I able to just pull the intake manifold with the head? There's one bolt I can't get (attatching the intake to the head), and I think I stripped it a bit... I also just read that I had to depressurize the fuel system. Woops. Anyway, think it would be a problem to pull the head with the intake manifold on it? I'm getting a new head tomorrow, anyway, so I see no need to be super careful with the head thats on the car at the moment. What could I do about the fuel system part?

Three rocker arms later and I still haven't learned my lesson!

I took my Intake manifold off when i resurfaced my cylinder head. Because of the Long bolts. But when i put it back i thought it'd be good idea, but the coolant temp sensors and few other stuff would be hard to get might as well just take it off. Clean them might as well? right have fun

You'll need to get it off at some point. You can prop it up out of the way with a long breaker bar or length of pipe.You won't need to remove any fuel lines or hoses doing it this way.
