Re: intake minifold removal
First, make sure you are 100% sure of having all bolts removed. Use a small mirror and flashlight if needed to check around all edges - 360 degrees. If there are hard to reach/see places, triple check those.
Once you're sure, it's probably just that the pressure and heat almost fuses the parts together, so some effort is required. Try using a rubber mallet or a small block of wood and a hammer, so that nothing too hard hits the manifold. Try tapping the manifold from the sides in the direction of sliding it across the face of the engine, not pounding it down onto the engine.
Don't hit it too hard, just lots of light taps to slowly break the seal between the manifold, gasket, and head.
