Will a E Thirteen LS1 ISCG 05 or E Thirteen LG1 ISCG 05 fit my Kona Stinky 2008?
Should I dismount the inner ring to get space for the chain guide?

I can't recall running the light guides too much on team bikes but the general geometry is the same as the other guides used and they fit fine.

You can only run one ring with guides you listed, if you want two rings you need to pick one of the guides with a D starting the description.

You will also need an ISCG adapter plate to fit any of those guides as your bike doesn't have tabs.

I will only use one ring, so that's no problem.
Do I really need an adapter, I thought Kona Stinky 2008 supported the ISCG 05?

As far as I know we didn't get ISCG tabs on the Stinky till 09.

That latest and greatest e.13 guide looks pretty nice and as said older versions fit fine. Since I haven't put that particular one on myself I can't say much more than to be sure to read and follow the instructions that e.13 provides, some folks when they start putting guides on the way they "think" they should fit they wind up with parts on backwards. The crew at e.13 tries to combat that by sending the parts out as pre-built as possible, but like I said make sure you stick to their instructions.

OK, so if I don't want to use a adapter I should look for ISCG or ISCG OLD (have seen this specification on some products)?

Any guide I've seen since about 04 has needed an adapter plate between the boomerang and the frame.

The guys who make the guides like it that way becuase they can make one boomerang and then a variety of smaller adapters to adjust for the various changing ISCG standards or frames that don't have tabs.

On a frame that doesn't have ISCG tabs you have to use and adapter plate.
