You would probably have to move the wiring harness and all of the other things that get in the way of the rear valve cover to pull it up from the engine bay.

Absolutely, you can remove it, but you may need to remove the crossover pipe and front manifold as well. Those aren't really that bad. Use lots of PB Blaster, the nuts will break loose.

In order to remove the crossover you will need to remove the nuts that hold the heat shield and power steering to the engine. It may help to remove the throttle body as well.

removing the rear manifold on a 95 is a snap.all you have to do is remove the rectangular vacum box that is in the center of the engine bay attached to the firewall.once you remove that you can loosen the bolts to the crossover pipe then the manifold bolts and wiggle the mani out from the top.Ive done it a hundred times.

So it must be much easier to remove than the rear valve cover.
