Hello all, just a quick tip on replacing the multiair units on these engines. Where Service information says to use the special tools to align the unit with the valves, GET THE ALIGNMENT PINS AND USE THEM. alignment pins are # also need spring compressor tool #10259B.

I just got done replacing the multiair unit without using the alignment oins and bent top of the valve stem.. Head removal required :( 

Hope this can help someone avoid some heartache in the future..

Good too know. I believe you posted recently about this vehicle not starting after multi air replacement. Thanks for being humble enough to admit what happened and share it with us. I'll tuck it back there!
