ok so i just picked up a 07 civic si about 2 weeks ago. so far its been a freking headache. its had 3 flat tires and one bent rim in less than a week. all problems due from last owner beating the crap out of the 18's he/she put on the car. anyway the last owner also painted the intake cover an ugly red/orange color. so i pulled it off and was gona strip the paint off..and thats when i noticed a broken valve cover stud. i know its a cheap and easy fix. i just dont know anything about the 06-08 civic si. anyone got any suggestions on how i can get the engine to tilt forwards enough for me to get the valve cover off? or do i have to drop the whole engine and transmission from the bottem of the car just to change it out
