Oh yeah, it's a bitch !

Once you remove enough parts to even get at the manifold there is barely enough room to swing the wrench any. Eventually after breaking one wrench then using 3 others of different head profiles along with penetrating oil, some heat (caution, O'ring around manifold) extreme patience and some choice words, I got them off.
If you are a salt water guy the difficulty factor goes up by the following equation; BOAT x SALT = !@#$%^

That was the hardest and most time consuming part of my SX swap.

Sorry to ruin your day.
