Bentley say "normal operation temperature". About 180F for my cylinder head.

Is it a good idea to first remove the injectors with the engine cold and clean the threads and apply some anti-seize?? Then warm it up.

I'm a little concerned about taking the injectors out of a hot aluminum head. I was taught no to do that on my old Beetle plugs.

Bentley says to do a compression test with engine at normal operating temperature. That would make it HOT for sure.
I think it would be best then to first remove the injectors cold, clean up the threads reinsert them using some anti-seize on threads.
Then, taking them out at normal temperature would be a snap (oops, no pun intended!!)
