    Hey, I replaced the vanos seals but when tightening the vanos cylinder cover bolts I broke 2 of them. :banghead: I guess I have a faulty torque wrench. I need to know the parts number for the bolts. Please help!

    Hey all, I have an aftermarket CF hood, and being that I don't trust my half-not working stock latch, I have picked up a set of hood pins, and I'm wondering if anyone knows the best place to mount the anchor bolts that would stick up and go through the hood and that the pins would slide into...
