    There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
    My labor guide says it takes 3 hour to replace the right manifold and 2 hours to remove and replace the left manifold and gaskets. Use plenty of liquid wrench and be careful not to break and tight hardware.
