It seems most 3800 owners face this project, so perhaps the best is to prepare for it, if you do your own auto repairs.
You could pay for a garage to do it, but it runs in the 4 figure.
Yes, it is like going to the dentist, something we all dread, but someting that must be done.
I have yet to do mine, I do not have a garage to work in, just the parking lot.
3800 failure is coming so we've got to get ready.
MOS keep in mind that if you do this BEFORE the intake fails, it will be way easier than trying to recover from post-failure. Much cleaner and easier.
