    That is gross there guy. Mine was a hell of a lot less of a mess.



    Like I said, mine and all that I have seen only need the one.



    See just one the second elbow that I have seen that you have is just part of the assembly on mine.

    I'm hoping to get the valve covers off next week. Its just been hard to find time to work on it due to my work schedule and what not. I hope when I take those off it isn't too bad of a mess in there.

    Plus my friend Keith who is helping me greatly with the project can't really find time off either. Either I'm working when he has off or he's working when I'm off. =/

    Just a warning if you havent delt with it before. There is an engine lift bracket in the back passenger side corner that makes it a bitch to remove the passenger side valve cover. Some can get it from the top, some do from the bottom, either way there are 2 bolts and you either need tiny arms or a lot of patience to get them off.

    |Pace 12:22| I vote we take the freak out for some joyrides.
    |freakv6 12:22| you can pace, then maybe you can drive the car afterwords

    LOL you guys are great.

    I managed to get the valve covers off!



    I'm still having trouble taking the upper manifold off though. I think I got all the bolts I needed to but it still won't budge so I guess not

    Judging by the looks of the valves I don't think it will be too messy once i take off the manifold... or at least I hope so.
