I forgot to post this but I was able to replace my CCV and vanos a few weekends ago. I was able to do this in 5hrs with a $19.00 tool kit and a few borrowed tools from Advanced auto. The main reason I could do this is because of you guy's and your AWESOME post with pictures. My wife wanted to sell the car but after I did the work myself and saved 2k and showed her how you guys have given me the confidence to do anything, she is on board and has looked through the site for me to do some cosmetic improvements.
Thanks to God and you guys!!!!
