I removed mine yesterday. Everything came of pretty easy (sprayed with PB blaster for a few days before trying) and will be easy to reinstall if needed for emission testing. I had an 86 that I ripped pretty much all the emission controls out of and the car not only passed but passed with flying colors.
I will make the plate and install it later today also picked up a threaded brass cap at home deot to seal the fitting on the manifold.
