Will pay for VC install help

Anyone want to help me install VC and gasket on N54?

I have a case of beer and $150 if you have tools and expertise.

Would be nice to get it done asap. I am near Boston but don't mind driving out.

Can also host.

How much of a rush are you in? I've done 4 of them now...it's honestly not a bad job.

VC = Valve Cover

also:
ASAP = As Soon As Possible
N54 = Best Worst Engine Ever

P.S. Huge fan of the GT350.

I would do it but don't have a garage, and only after Thanksgiving...

Do you still need this done? Torgus and I might do it for you if you need. We'd do it in Acton sometime after Thanksgiving. I have to do some work on mine anyway. Let us know.

If it took us more than 1.5h I would be disappointed. I wonder what the shop time is...maybe 3?
