Re: Rocker Covers

You will have to take the upper intake manifold off to get to the drivers side one. Once thats off it is straight forward.

Re: Rocker Covers

It's not really a big job, you can leave almost everyting on the upper manifold and just undo the 8 bolts holding it down then move it aside. As for gaskets, yeah you should either use a new gasket or I just use some gasket maker like black/blue/copper silicon.
