I've used the eristic valve cover gaskets from eBay and they work just fine (but NOT the head gaskets). You may want to check RockAuto Auto Parts for felpro valve cover kit, the OEM kit is about $25 per side (just the valve cover by itself is under $10/ea). The felpro kit should be around $35 plus shipping or tax.

do you guys use liquid gasket (HondaBond) in addition to the new gasket. the manual states to just use it on the curved parts. but anyone suggest using it for the whole thing?

The funny thing is that when i go acura or autopart store and ask for liquid gasket seems they don't know what it is. they look at me as if I was crazy or don't know what i am talking about.

Now the honda bond do you have a number on that because Acura tells me they no longer use the bond.

Any suggestion?

just go to the honda dealer and ask for hondabond. i go to honda for all generic things like coolant, brake fluid, batteries, hondabond, etc. it's cheaper and they usually have more parts in stock.

Is there a write up on the replacement process anywhere?

Or is this so simple we don't need one?

its pretty straight forward, i wouldn't call it simple. it's kind of a pain in the butt. i had to do it 3 times because i kept messing up the gasket and liquid gasket combination, but if you get it right the first time it's not bad
