You'll see a big difference on your back with the car raised.

Not as tough as some make out. CVV takes patience. Don't rush the job.
Yah, I have watched those videos and it brings up the confidence.
I am worried about breaking something else while trying to fix something. I have done it many times

I am going to replace the VCG, lower intake boot, water pump pulley and the belts too.
I have never done this kind of job before, so I am a bit nervous about removing everything.
However, I have done the VCG so many times that I can do it with my eyes closed now.

I know I am going to have hell of a tough time, the clamps on the lower intake boots are upside down and the fan clutch nut is really stub born on mine.

Will post an update when I do these things.
