You have to remove the intake manifold to replace it unless you replace it with a flexible silicone aftermarket one (in which case you'll probably have to cut the stock one in half to get it out). I wouldn't mess with any of the cheaper aftermarket ones though - the time you gain in not removing the intake manifold will be lost in dealing with the fitment issues, and you won't feel good about your work after.

There are some quality aftermarket ones though (don't remember which off the top of my head). It really boils down to the extra cost of one of the high quality aftermarket ones vs the extra time to remove the intake manifold in order to use the OEM.
