Just replaced this part in my car today. I removed the charge pipe and then separated the intake from the block, I did not completely remove the intake manifold due to issues with removing the wiring harness attached to the underside of it. Got a large ratchet and a 24MM Deep sockt and was able to remove the part. Took me a about 60-90 minutes from start to finish(I was also bullshitting with other mechanics for a lot of this).

Sorry I don't have a camera, these are all phone pics

Get all the basic stuff out of the way, remove the charge pipe and engine cover, disconnect associated cables(two under engine cover), one on the throttle body, and another next to the intake manifold(yellow). Remove your DCI or air box(blue). Charge pipe requires a torque screw and a flat head, pretty easy(orange).

Remove the 1 bolt and 6 nuts from the intake and separate it from the block, this requires patience and a bit of jiggling.

Replace the Low Pressure Fuel Sensor.
