no u dont have to actually take the tappet cover off. its only a small black plastic cover that "hides" the coil packs and wiring, u need to take that off, it has a seal, but its re-useable as it only holds out water and dirt. the very back alan key bolt is a pain in the a***, i'm sure u'll be swearing and cursing by the time u get that 1 out, if u try it yourself that is :)

Supercharged Commo's are crap, a STOCK XR6T will beat one, a modded E-Seires will beat one, you will beat him effortlessly
