This is impossible to do with the number 6 rubber connector with the engine in the car because the clips have to be done up with the screw facing the rear (away from you) of the engine bay in order for it to clear the fan shroud. It's a matter of having just that one pair tightened up and the runner in the correct orientation to meet the intake (and maybe number 5 too - don't remember) and hoping for the best. It's tough but doable.
Agree with all your advice.
Still recommend starting the inner nut on runner six stud before you place number five runner on. Barely on though, so you can maneuver the box some as needed
