valve cover gasket

How hard is it to replace the valve cover gasket on the drivers side? The injector harness in side the valve cover has come undone. This should be fun I expect.

Once ya get the intake tube and intercooler pipe out of the way it’s not that bad. Couple hours at the most...

Driver side is definitely easier to remove than the passenger side. Passenger side has a couple bolts that are a PITA to remove.

Yep, driverside is much easier. Should take a couple of hours at most.

The only real challenges are the intake tube support and the very front bolt behind the bracket. Two hours should about cover it, I can do it in less than that on a E-350 which is a LOT more challenging.
