Replacing the stock intake with an AEM
I removed the old stock intake with an AEM Cold Air Intake, which I picked up second hand on EBay. Unfortunately, because I have an automatic transmission, the cold air intake would not go all the way into the wheel well. I tried it with just the short pipe however; I was not pleased with the hood covering part of the filter so, I hack-sawed the second pipe and got the filter below the battery.
Removing the valve cover and changing the gaskets
I had oil leaking into one of the spark plug wires and two small leaks around the outside edge so, off came the valve cover, in went new gaskets, I cleaned all the edges, and replaced.
