I doubt you will need WD40 etc. - not much rust in California.

If you want to be safe then replace the manifold bolts (900 378 131 00). I think they are about $1.29 each retail.

Torque setting are here.

thx loren

good idea, i'll get some bolts (9 right?).

i guess at 19lb-ft the header bolts shouldn't be that hard to get off.

heya Carlos, we always use liquid wrench but it's more of an issue on turbo studs than NA parts.... If you can't wrench it off don't use too much force. Get a rubber mallet but hopefully they weren't over torqued.

Oh and just use anti-sieze obviously:)

Too bad you're in the bay area, I am going to install a set on my car this upcoming weekend as well as a plethora of other things, and my father has a lift and full snapon and air tools! hehe.

I can't wait, I am going to do 14" stoptech's front new rotors rear, with pagid orange and stainless lines all around. gt3rs brake ducts, srf fluid, installing a custom braided clutch line, B&B headers, changing tranny fluid, changing plugs, and maybe replacing the boots and coil packs if bad (will be testing). I think I will also install screens in my front bumper and clean the radiators, and possibly modifiy the mount on the 3rd on as well. Oh, and I am going to change out the wheel bearings at all 4 corners. I should be able to knock it all out in a full day, yes I am that good or stupid :)

That is going to be a FULL day. You would be hard pressed to do all four wheel bearings in an 8 hour period, just doing one is a pretty big pain in the butt, even if you have your own press.

PTEC, I was originally going to press them myself, but I forgot that the press is in storage and will be too much of a PITA to get out, so I will send them to the machine shop I used last time. While that is going on I will be doing the work on the other parts- :)
