There's a wire bail on each connector at the injectors push it down and then unplug the connectors

Thanks Doe,

looks like those wires are also tied to that rail inside before they go on up to the cover. I have great access to remove them, is there even any reason to pull the valve cover completely off instead of just sliding it to the side like it is now. Anything i need to inspect while in there?

To the left in your picture, the plug in on the valve cover will have a ring of teeth holding it in the hole. Push all those teeth in with the right sized deep socket and the connector should push in. I do it that way because the connectors on the injectors can get brittle due to heat, and you don't want to break any off.
