    I havent heard of it to be honest.. I guess just make sure you get the gaskets in right.. But for sure let us know if you end up with a change in power.. and are you running a TBI still or a carb???

    Nope, its all pretty simple, just drain fluid out of your rad, so you don't dump it all on yourself and over your engine. Just take your time, when you get your old intake manifold off, immediately put something in the intake holes, you can use a crumpled up piece of paper towel, or CLEAN rags. Then just clean up any grime and the old gasket. Then follow the instructions to install the gaskets the right way. And then just go in reverse from when you took the intake manifold off.
