Re: Replacing intake gasket...

Just did this repair. Special thanks to NickXXX for starting this thread and Bearcatdon for all that good info!!! 1st I'd heard for the warning about the tightening sequence.
Note: My torque wrench took a dump so I did the job without it. I paid alot of attention getting all the bolts torqued the same. Much to my suprise I've had no problems whatsoever. I guess I've had enough troubles in the past. Somebody likes me.
If I had to do it over I would be smart and get a torque wrench though.

p.s. don't lose the fuel inlet O-ring. Chevy dealer charged me 8 bucks for it.

again thanks for the good info on the thread

cheers
