I think the hydroboost needs to be moved out of the way.

or... you can unbolt the k member bolts on the drivers side, not all the way off but just enough that you will have room to take the drivers side valve cover off but be careful and support the side you unbolt with a jackstand or something just in case.

You can remove the drivers side by unbolting the drivers side motor mount and jacking up that side of the motor. I have done this in the car multiple times without removing the hydroboost.
