The problem I see is that with EGR, I can't part the intake and exhaust manifolds enough to let the head come through unless I first dismantle the wraparound EGR piping. Also, I can't imagine how to get to the lower intake manifold bolts without taking a bunch of fuel injection doodads like the cold start valve. In short, I don't think I'll save any time by leaving the manifolds in the car.

But thanks for the suggestion. The head's not out yet since I get to work on it about 15 minutes a day so there might be an opportunity to do it your way
