Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question

Do you have the intake still bolted to the head? How about the exhaust? What do you have apart right now?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I have disconnected exhaust. The intake isn't moving at all.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Cams are removed and timing chain right?

Did you look on the back side of the block under the intake to see if there is any extra brackets?

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
