1- the seal will need the special tool. no way around it. Walky has a tool he loans out.

2- I could go into deal, but the short of it is, just get a proper tune. They can be had cheap nowadays.

Without a real tune you won't get the right air to fuel ratios.

ok I just figured I would ask im on a budget so the tune will have to wait just don't have 500$ to spend on a tune and how do I summon walky do I say his name 3 times in a mirror or shine a spot light in the sky lol

You call him on his walky talky, duh. Channel 10.

Tunes can be had for cheap. Check out reflect tuning, for one.

Also, if $500 is too rich for your blood then you are in way over your head with a B5, especially if you plan on modding it any further.

$350 for a high quality tune that you can flash yourself in your driveway. I recommend it.

That's a pretty sweet deal for the valve cover including replacement pads.
