<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">mpg9999 asked:
How much torque do I use on the Valve cover bolts?</font>
Initially, tighten the center and four corners to 2.9 ft-lb. Then, again starting at the center and working radially outwards, tighten to 7.2 ft-lb. Be careful, and it wouldn't hurt to have a few extra bolrs and nuts on hand, as the can snap pretty easily.

Thanks. I just put my new nology spark plug wires on and I had to connect the grounds to the bolts on the valve cover. I was carful and didnt break any bolts. Thats a good thing otherwise I wouldnt be going to school tommorow. Thanks for the info

be warned there has been some trouble here and there from the nology wires and the ecu. they create all kinds of em fields that sometimes can screw with the ecu. or so i heard from mike k. at the convention.

For the JWT ECU, the stock one, or both? I just drove it around tonight and didnt seem to have any problems. BTW, I dont have the JWT ECU... yet.
