If your at that point, change the LIM gaskets. Replace them with the aluminum framed gaskets. The OEM gaskets are plastic framed and fail.

Rock auto will have them, but make sure you get the right ones. Also check ZZ performance. They will have the aluminum ones.

The aluminum intake i found is from a L26 i would need a 100 dollar spacer and i would have to block off a unused port or two but its a direct bold on! For everything it run around $210 dollars on zz performance!
