The nice thing is my car uses/loses very little oil, id say 1/4qt every 5k (knock on wood), so I now its not leaking a ton. Now I have to find a weekend to do this. Ordering the gasket now, is there anyone in SoCal that wants/can help : ) Mr.5? lol
I'm in SoCal. How far are you from me? Still a question on torq because originally told 22Nm and now told 19Nm... I used 22Nm when I retrofitted...
