First you will need to remove the intake plenum, then the lower intake.

Remove the hose from the thermostat inlet housing.

Remove the bolt that holds the extension housing to the head near the oil dipstick.

Carefully jack up the passenger side of the engine and remove the t-stat extension housing.

Remove the thermostat housing bolts and remove the housing.

These are a real pain in the captain s quarters!
