2018/10/02 - Valley Cover and Intake
I received the Valley Cover back from VRaptor VERY quickly (thanks, Shane!) and bolted it back on.
Then the intake went back on. Several people reported needing to do some "surgery" to the intake manifold for clearance issues. I had none, it plopped back on without issue.
As always, pay attention to torque specs!
8 ft-lbs, no particular designated sequence. I followed the intake manifold, couldn't hurt.
Intake Manifold [THESE ARE IN INCH POUNDS]:
First pass, fully threaded
Second pass, 44 in-lbs
Third Pass, 89 in-lbs
Estimated time: 1 hour
