Hello all. I own a 1996 OBDII s14 (KA engine), and I would like some tips in removing the intake manifold (IMF). I want to change my PCV vale and possible add an oil catch tank. Yet I can see its going to be a ***** removing the IMF. The top part is covered with vacuum lines and fuel lines. I think the bottom part is even worse. So if any one can give me some tips here I know it might help me avoid some headaches. Oh, and Yes I do own a factory service manual for those who feel the need to ask. Thank you all in advance. http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

You don't need to remove anything to change the PCV valve except the alternator.
If you still feel the need to remove it, drop the plenum first, remove the brackets supporting it, the alternator, and oil filter, it will fall right out. Pull the runners next. 25 minutes tops.

I was able to get to mine just by swinging the alternator out of the way... didn't even have to remove it.

True, but you never who you're dealing with. Shortcuts can often confuse people.

Man I really wish I had written this post before I started working on the car. LOL

Yet itís a great past time exploring the engine bay, of course as long as you know what you are doing. Itís my first 240, so I am having fun getting to know my car better. Thank you all for you responses.
