    drivers side valve cover removal

    Hey all! Balls deep into the engine bay. I spent a few minutes searching around this forum and the web but everyone seems focused on the passenger side cover. For the drivers side, do I need to remove the booster to get the cover off, or should I remove the upper intake?

    Neither, unbolt the engine mount from the cross member, tilt the engine a little.

    Remove the wiper trans cowl and little bracket to firewall. Lifts right out.
