Valve covers seem to be in the ridiculously low torque range.....like less 
than 10 ft lbs..... I don't have the specs right here.  Maybe 
http://www.sjmautotechnik.com/ ...........................and here:

Also I've found TWO identical vac hose breaks from the BPV which routes along 
the intake air tract around to the back of the engine.

Both split right about here (tease) which I'll send you the photo and any 
lister who asks....
