Default Help: Remove Intake Manifold - 2001 S281SC

Would anyone happen to have a photo of the bottom of the intake manifold. I'd like to remove the supercharger and intake manifold so I can get the intake manifold painted, but there's so much stuff on the back left of the the engine I can't even get to the fuel rail to get it off (or anything else in that area). The black plastic part (don't know what its called) that goes between the throttle body and the back of the supercharger blocks access to just about everything in that area. And I can't take it off since two of the bolts are on the back bottom side, with no way to get to them.
Is it possible to remove the intake manifold with the supercharger still on it. The reason I need to see the underside of the intake manifold is to see where the bolt are that attach it to the engine block.

Pm me your number some time. I just did this over the weekend and can kind of give you help on the process. I removed the intake manifold with the supercharger still on it. I CANNOT imagine removing just the blower off the manifold, with the manifold still bolted to the head. The black plastic part you are referring to I believe in the INLET which feeds from the air filter to the back of the supercharger.
