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

Yea the newer style were redesigned to last longer or somethin like that. Last I heard you were supposed ot change them every 15k or so to be safe?

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
