Taking off VVT-i covers
Ok so i wanna know how you take off the little plastic covers on my VVT-i engine because the VVTL-i doesnt have them and i like that better, but will it look just as good? and is it worth it?

You've never seen what's underneath the cover have you? It looks like crap, so just leave the cover on, but if you wanna take it off it's just two nuts that hold it down in the middle & two plastic clips in the rear.

Yep yep. If you wanna remove it to see, though, it's pretty simple. Undo the two metal screws, then use a pair of needle nose plyers to undo the two plastic screws on the "top," being careful not to break them.
