After you remove the plastic shroud and metal box directly below it you can gain access to the front three. As for the back, remove the connector and screw at the 7 o'clock position on the dist cap off to the side. You CAN reach the back three with two 6 inch socket extenders and without remvoing any other engine parts. Should take 30 min regardless of experience. I just did mine and I'm not a mechanic.

The upper intake manifold must be removed for access, as well as other components. Once that is done, the fuel rail can be unbolted and the injectors removed.
