are you kidding? lol the valve cover gasket is easy in any car, but pulling the fuel tank is becomming a pain in my arse... gota pull the exaust and the shaft and everything... sorry just frustrated with it lol
rember these rules of thumb, dont overtighten(get a haynes manual) and tighten the bolts across from eachother little by little untill tight enough
