    I have no idea on the webers, would like to get one soon for mine, but as far the bottom bolts go you're going to need some contortionist skills (if you are taking it off in car). It's frickin' ridiculous, I had to use a wrench, a quarter turn at a time.

    don't use a pressure regulator, you'll blow your stock machanical pump. i got rid of the machanical and went with an electric 2.5-4psi pump. no regulator needed. and yes, the lower intake bolts suck. but just so you know, you don't need to take off the intake to change the head gasket. if your intake gasket needs changing, wait till you get the head off first and then it will be really easy to access the lower bolts. as far as what hoses to remove, check the performance section. i think all you need is the vacuum advance hose but don't quote me.
