    Are the PCMs from the S-1 the same as the ones in the S-2?

    Specifically for the gen3 manual trans.

    They donít make that nut any more. But it seems to me that any similarly threaded input shaft nut from another car that fits into the space with a socket ought to work.

    What do you guys think?

    SC2 Automatic - Input Shaft Nut?

    I just replaced the valve body on my 01 SC2A.

    I did not check the input shaft nut, deciding to first see if it is needed before diving into that.

    You are correct.

    ďRocker arm cover to headĒ I thought meant valve cover. Reading more shows it is actually ďCamshaft cover to headĒ

    Thank you for the correction.

    You can. But once it brittles, it will break in more than one place. So you are better off just replacing it. Itís easier too. $6 at Autozone.

    According to the OEM manual, spec is 22 foot pounds. I believe that if I torqued it to that, it would crack. I used 89 inch pounds per the interwebs.

    Sunroof yes.

    Trunk leaks too. I thought it was the rubber seal coming off. Maybe itís what you said, causing the rubber seal to detach.
