hi guys..
i just finished installing my fresh out of the machine shop b16a head port n polished full valvetrain skunk2 stage 2 cams..
while bolting down my cam caps.. SNAPP!! the bolt broke off inside on te exhaust side next to the camshafts.. its the 12mm bolt..

will it be a problem if i leave that bolt alone?

it is advisable to have the bolt removed and replaced. you are installing stage 2 cams that require you to rev the snot out of your engine to build power. a slight imbalance at high rpms can cause catastrophic damage. while others may say it's just one bolt, think about that one bolt as an investment for that *just in case* moment.
