Perfect fit for 01 civic LX
Installation went smoothly. Great fit, and video was helpful. If they have a kit with the Cam plug thing and all of these gaskets and seals, go for that one instead. Itll add another 30 seconds to your repair, and stop another common oil leak for these engines.

Valve Cover Gasket Set
This valve cover gasket set feels pretty sturdy and the video that came along with this made the installation a lot less frustrating; knowing what tools to use is also great. Id recommend this set for the average diyer.
