    A Kinda Lame N54 Valve Cover Removal Video Tutorial


    Enjoy. Available in HD.

    I already had the cover off so I thought I'd
    make a video. It's not really a DIY because a lot of the work is just removing all the star bolts so I just gave some pointers.

    Eh, because I didn't show all the steps of actually removing the cover. There were a few things I didn't show. I just figured something was better than nothing.

    I liked the fact that you focused on the "pain points". It's not that hard or intimidating, but certainly not the same as removing the valve covers on a 289 ford.
    nice job

    this video is badass man! i was actually intimidated about the whole fuel line stuff, but didn't realize the injectors didn't need to come off and line from the rail to injector was so easy. when you mentioned sealant for the valve cover, the new gasket isn't enough to prevents leaks? or is it common practice to put a light coating of sealant along the gasket ridges for extra protection?

    You probably could get away with no sealant but the bentley states using some anti-friction coating for the rubber portion.

    Just curious why were you replacing? I was told by dealer that my valve cover was leaking internally? Crankcase pressure at .996 and .994 bar not enough vacuum on car and to replace valve cover. I have oil leaking where the inlet is on the back turbo. Turbos are brand new just replaced and this is what they said after I brought them back complaining about the oil there.

    They listed these parts were needed:

    1 Cylinder head
    1 profile gasket
    2 torx screw
    6 decoupling element
    6 gasket ring

    These sound right Pits200? Also replacing the PCV valve with a upgraded valve from Rob with RBturbo.

    Any thoughts or insight much appreciated.
