    Yeah the movie was pretty amazing. Go see it ASAP.

    One thing though... Even after installing a new gasket, I still hear a slight leak from the passenger side. Do you think it's because the bolts aren't tight enough, or do I need some of the silicone crap to seal it up? I'm gonna get under the car tomorrow and see if I can tighten it up a bit more. It's hardly noticeable, though. Before I got a new gasket, it sounded like ****. Now it just sounds like air, rather than that annoying rattling sound that leaks produce.

    I would think, tighten it up first and see and then seal it if it still leaks. If it doesn't work out, take it to a shop and have them look at it. They can probably fix it easily.

    I guess it's hard to properly tighten those bolts when you're using a 10" extension and a swivel head. :\

    its the passenger i presume, i would loosen both the pass. and driver side, and tighten the pass side first, than the driver side . i had the same problem, cause the pass., side manifold is flat and the driver side has a ball flang. try that and see what happens. oh and i am legend was the sh** i thought.

    Will that really work? I've been under that car so much in the past few days. :( The bolts are just in such an awkward place that I can't get in a good position to torque the bolts as hard as I potentially can.
