Intake halves are bonded together, the rods serve as stabilizers at this point. The halves can't be separated without cutting.

There should be ring clamps on each of the throttle bodies that you have to loosen up. I believe they are 6mm nuts.

check this picture you can see the ring clamps around each throttle body.

Those two bolts on the top do nothing for the removal. As aznboi319 said above, loosen each of the throttle body clamps, then pull up. Disconnect your IAT sensor first.
