CAI was removed.
The harness needs to be disconnected from coils, inj, etc.
Valve covers removed and cleaned.
Crank pulley, Water Pump pulley, A/C delete pulley, & tensioner pulley were removed.
Power steering reservoir & pump removed.
Front Timing covers has to come off and cleaned.
The tensioners and timing chains had to come off.
Chains were checked remarked.
#1 spark plug was removed to check TDC.
The cams & chains were lined up and tensioners torqued down.
The heads & block were cleaned for gaskets.
Then everything was bolted back together and torqued to specs.
The estimated cost ranges from $600-$900. for 7 hours labor.
