Now, you need to remove all the old valve cover left on the head...
I used a flat head screw driver, to *easily* scrape off the old gasket. But don't scratch it hard or else you will leave indention's on the head.
After its done, it should look something like this.
Now, you want to make sure that the round parts that the spark plug o-rings sit on are clean and clear of debris.
After the head is cleared of all remaining gasket material, to go the valve cover. Now you need to pull out the old spark plug o-rings.
After the old o-rings are removed, put in the new ones.
After all the o-rings are installed, put the valve cover gasket around the valve cover.
It should look like this when your done.
Apply Mopart Engine RTV GEN II at the
camshaft cap corners and at the top edges of the 1/2
Now, you want to put the valve cover back on the head. Have someone hold their hands under the valve cover and turn it upside down to make sure that no gaskets come loose or fall out. it helps to have one person hold the hoses and lines on the passenger side of the block so you can put it on there easily. Once its on the head, it should look like this.
Now, you need to start putting in the bolts. This is a multiple step process. First, there is a pattern to which you tighten the bolts, and then, there is a three step tightening sequence you need to follow.
Here is a diagram of the bolts you need to tighten up first.
And here are the pictures of each hole. These following pictures are in order. Put the bolt in these following holes. When you put each bolt in the hole, tighten them to 40in lbs.
After all your bolts are in, and tightened to 40in lbs, start back at the first bolt (in the diagram above) and tighten them all to 80in lbs. After you have tighten them all to 80in lbs, start again, following the diagram above, start at the first bolt, and lastly tighten them all to 105in lbs.
Now that all of your bolts are finally tightened to 105in lbs, go back to the 5th bolt, put the nut back on, slide the metal around the bolt, then slide the black holder in place. After this is done, re-attach your PCV valve and its hose, and the drivers side hose back to the valve cover... I secure all of mine with zip ties. that's your choice. Next, put to coil pack back on. Set it on the valve cover, thread the bolts in by hands until there tight, then tighten them down with a 10MM socket. These don't need to be very tight... so don't over tighten them. After the coil pack is secured, put the coil pack clip back on... press it towards the coil pack firmly. Whenever it is on there, press the red tab towards the front of the car until it clicks into place.
Now, put your injector cover back on, and clean up your tools. Start the car. Make sure there is no oil squirting out of anywhere... if there is, shut it off immediately, and go back over your steps. let it get to normal operating temperature, let it cool down. Inspect the valve cover front to back for leaks. Pull out the spark plug wires, and make sure that the spark plug o-rings are not leaking. If everything looks fine, close the hood, and call it a day!
After i put mine on, i gained +3 PSI. I thought i was just running lower boost due to low temperatures. Tuns out i must have been leaking boost from around my valve cover.
