Removal is super easy. Disconnect fuel rail in bolt intake bolts disconnect hoses and be really careful with the one in the back.

Anybody can chime in on this but more towards DRUM or Rick. I plan on getting a Livernois cam/and Circle D put in this spring. Livernois will then dyno tune it after the install, will it be better to already have the ported tb and manifold on the car so it is a part of the dyno tune or will it not effect the tune that much to the point where I could install it after the dyno tune and not have to worry about leaving tq/hp on the table.

Def get the intake and tb on the car BEFORE the dyno. Many of us who run Ricks intake and tb had to have our tune adjusted after switching.

Best mod for the buck right here! With ricks intake you will definitely notice more top end pull. I'm extremely happy with mine.
