    I'm having a rocker cover gasket replaced next week (AKE engine). Question is......is there any other preventative maintenance I can have done at the same time?
    I'm getting my local Indy to do it but wondered if you guys knew of anything else I could get done whilst he's in there and got the pipes off?
    Thanks in advance.

    I'm getting mine done too soon. The only thing that springs to mind is replacing the return pipes off the injectors. These can perish and suck air in.

    the return pipes and the brass washers that sit in the return pipe bases.

    I did my AFB engine which should be similar to your AKE, and the washers were pennies from Audi- remember you need 12 in total. The pipe I got from a factors and cut to the correct sizes.
