    Intake Manifold Removal Difficulties

    I am attempting to remove my 08 wrx engine since it is blown and i need a new short block and to re-machine my heads. I am stuck on removing the intake manifold, for some reason the fuel lines that run under the intake are connected to it by a metal piece with a bolt on the underside, i cant find a way to get at the bolt and i cant find a way to pull the fuel line from the metal piece either, any one have any suggestions? Im stuck and cant go on without disconnecting them somehow. its just 1 fuel line that i cant get to and i dont see a way around it besides cutting the hose

    its hard to tell without seeing the whole engine but i would leave it connected and lossen up all the intake bolts and lift it up to see if you can get at it half flipped up. older style you leave everything on and just pull the main lines and wires off. havent done an 08 yet
