Just replaced my valve cover as well as gasket and did the walnut blast at the same time. Came home early one day & took the following day off. Took the VCG off put new one on but left the fuel rail off and some other stuff that was kinda in the way of intake manifold, then took intake manifold off and cleaned intake valves. Then I put the intake manifold back on and the rest of what I removed from doing the VCG. Not a bad DIY job saved a bunch of money, I heard VCG is $1000 and $500-$850 for walnust blast. VCG was easy Walnust blast is time consuming. I have 66,000 miles. Oil was leaking into cylider 3 and caused misfires.
