Alright so I ended up getting some more work done this weekend, just waiting on another bolt I broke, stupid vanos bolt, when re-tightening just snapped. But yeah before I get to that,

Got my self a set of solo werks s1's from dv8 performance

So removal went pretty smooth for the vanos seal replacement.

got the kit from beisan systems quality kit well worth the 70 dollars rather than the 800+ for a new vanos unit.


Head looks like its in decent shape.

Looking at why the seals need to be replaced, that should really not be sitting like that haha.

Close up.

Andd then putting the vanos unit together went quite smooth, then when I went to tight the intake side bolt it snapped sooo, gotta wait til I get the bolt in the mail

A wise mechanic once told me, "working on cars is like sex, you have to know where to touch and how to push."
