    For me the removal of the rear shock and the fan looks much simpler and quicker. The only issue I had was removing the O2 sensor which was ridiculously tight. Fortunately I was swapping the headers through damage so I dremmelled the damaged header in half and pulled it upwards with the O2 attached. It was even hard to get it out with the header in a vice - it would have been impossible insitu.

    Can you replace head gasket with rotate only? Or do you have to pull engine?

    When the gasket install is completed.
    Is there a requirement to retorque the cylinder head bolts after a few miles?
