metric system, lol.
haha, ok... you're right... you sure know a lot about these lift bolt thingy's... I'd almost think you had liftTronix said:No actually the valve cover is 10 newton meters. or 7 ft-lb's the TSB shows it both ways for you. I was right, you should know better than to correct me!

Usman, same old man... needing an oil change but besides that, nothing much going on in S.FL anymore as most of the guys have moved to orlando for school... so it's just me and Derek (the dude with the EVO, boyracer's brother)...
wat is this? cans somebody post some pics?Did you replace the gaskets as well? (valve cover gasket and O-ring for the oil line) and if you didn't, have you noticed any leaking?
is that ur guess or is torqueing them to 7 ft-lbs a fact? also can i use a torque wrench i use on my rims to torque down the lift bolt? or do i need to go out and buy a small torque wrench?well, Technically yes, you are suppose to torque them to 7 ft-lbs, but thats not alot of torque, so you can tighten them right with a standard socket wrench.

wat can u use to torque it down to that spec? i dont have a torque wrench so is there any other way to do this? or should i go and buy a torque wrench? if so is there a specific torque wrench i should buy? i kno that the torque wrench used on rims are huge so i doubt u could use that on the bolts right?
