    Alright, what tool do you use to remove the plastic "INTECH" piece on the 2nd gen mark VIII? i tried a few of my larger allen wrenches with obviously no success. HELP!

    yes, i am asking this because i may be needing to remove the alternator soon.

    IIRC, they are 8mm allen head bolts. It's been SO long since I worked on a 2nd gen.

    It's just a 1/4" drive, no socket attached.

    Only gen 2's (97 and 98's) have this Intech cover. It's removed for cosmetic reasons. The gen 1's (93 to 96) have the big engine cover that is gaudy. Most remove that one as well.

      No it won't fit, look at how different the intake manifold is plus the COP.

      COP ingition would'nt affect that. It doesnt stick up anymore than the gen1 does. the intake is all wrong tho.

      I have one more question, I have heard that the intake of the gen 1 is better, is that true.
