I finally got all my parts to put together my HVTB and get it on my car.

I have a quick question about the screws that hold on the MAF / IAC etc.

Would this tool set have me covered?

Yup, if you don't want to wait auto parts stores have a full set like that for about 10 bucks.

I have amazon prime, so no tax and shipping is always free 2-day and saves me the trip, since I won't get to it until the weekend anyway.

Thanks though, just placed the order.

Also it's so hard to go to a parts store and not buy so much misc. crap that I don't need haha

That's how the Amazon Prime gets you... you end up buying stuff you could get cheaper locally. It's a pretty good racket if you ask me. Laughing

No comment...

(It's on the list of stuff to get done. Now that it's getting warmer, I can actually get this stuff done)

I don't know how you can sit on parts for so long...

It's killing me that I've had a few parts that need to wait for the warmth to go on, and I've only had those a little over a month now!

It is somewhat of annoyance, but when parts pop up at prices you can't say no to (320ish bucks for AGX struts, 100 bucks for an HVTB, 180 bucks for Vogtland springs) you tend to buy them even if there is no plan to install them immediately.

The sad thing is I have had the springs since July of 2008, the struts since December of 2008, the HVTB since last April.... the good news is I have everything I need for the struts and am planning on doing them on Saturday.

I can understand that.

That's how I got stuck with my new spoiler in the winter time and can't install it until spring. Same thing with my roof rails haha

Right now it's like 55 so I'm hoping it stays like this throughout the weekend so I can do some work on the car, but I still want to wait for the 3M recommended 65 before I attempt my other exterior stuff

Split the topic. The rest of the discussion can be found here:
http://www.naioa.com/v2/module.....highlight=

If you don't want to spend the money on a tool set you'll probably only use a couple times,.. take a dremel tool with a cutting blade, and cut a slot in the top of the screws. Now you can just use a flat tip screw driver to remove. If you're worried, add a dab of medium strength thread locker when reinstalling.

Another quick question for putting on the HVTB

I have a new gasket, am I going to need to RTV the gasket to anything like when I put my valve cover gaskets on? Or is the TB just simply put the gasket in it's spot and tighten?

Decided to put the HVTB on today. It was sunny and nice out, and figured why not.

Thanks for all your help guys Smile

It took me a little over an hour (stupid California Emissions pump) to disconnect the old TB, and about 10 minutes to put everything back together.

Very simple, and as you can see... it was much needed!!

It's getting to be about time I do mine as well. Did you end up reusing the stock gasket? How about using RTV?
