It just pops off. Not sure what else to say. Maybe try standing on a step stool for more leverage.

Re: 5.7L engine cover removal?

Pulling it off is easy. Putting it back on is kind of a pain and will definitely take a few tries to get both sides lined up. Either way, there's definitely no way you can break anything.

Thanks guys, got it off and installed my BT CC. It look F#%king awesome. This is my first under-the-hood modification so far. More to come.

Good work Now you should post your pics in the Got my Billet Technology Catch Can today thread over in the Engine Performance/Intakes/Exhausts section so people can get ideas of how the various colors and hose options look.
