That said, I've failed on the three VCG's ive done with leaks that show up down the line, but I suspect it because I've foolishly used Victor Reinz gaskets the whole time.
i could probably do the VCGs again but i don't really wanna do the VANOS
plus it took me 4hrs to do VCGs first time and they're leaking now
i don't really have all that time so if i can pay them $700 i'll be fine
i'm just worried if valve cover is cracked it will probably put me over $900 and i don't really wanna do that especially with xmas coming
