So what's the deal. Do the new ones last longer? Do you ever have to change them again after you install the new style? confused

The 6 and 7 bolts was a bitch and take the longest. thumbsdown thumbsdown otherwise it's easy. Just make sure everything line up right when you put it back or else oil will leak thumbsdown
