Hey all, I just wanted to show some people what’s involved in replacing valve cover gaskets in these V8 GTs. I’ve replaced countless valve cover gaskets, these particular ones are from my neighbor’s 2012 GT. He tried to replace them himself (the gaskets were so dried that they were legitimately dripping onto the cats from the back of the cylinder head). He said when he started he figured he could replace them since he “Always changed the gaskets on his old Chevy trucks”. Needless to say these cars need a certain finesse to do the job properly. The cowl doesn’t have to be removed unless it’s a convertible because there’s an extra cross brace, but don’t get me wrong it definitely helps add some extra room. This isn’t some step by step repair procedure, and dry sump motors are a bit different, but most of my customers never get a chance to see what goes into the repair or what their cars look like without valve covers, so here are some pictures. If you guys have any questions or are looking for some repairs shoot me a pm.
