    i was changing the valve cover gasket today on my b18a, and as i torqued down the bolts, one of them snapped off inside the nut. does anyone know if they are replaceable, or am i shit outta luck?

    Eh? I got mine for something like $5

    You just take off the valve cover, and use a 10mm wrench to remove the old stud and replace it with the new one.

    Go to the junkyard and pull one off a dead engine. Worked for me.
