Nope. Be careful to pull the intercooler cover off because on mine part of that one stuck to the cover and the rest stayed on the bottom so I can see where it might have broke/tore had I just yanked it off. I can also see where the s/c to head gasket could be a pain since it's underneath the s/c and you can't really see it. It went relatively smoothly once I admitted defeat and decided to just remove the s/c to access the plugs rather than trying to get them changed while it was on. Since I had a new pulley to install the belt had to come off anyway so I wasn't too many more steps from pulling the whole thing off. I was hoping to be able to do it w/o pulling the s/c though that way the next time I need to change plugs I wouldn't have to pull it. The next time I need to change plugs I'll need a new belt anyway so just an excuse to do everything at once.
