No, you want the Dillon upper intake manifold. Rebuilt and improved by Bob Dillon. Bill Buttermore has helped extensively with ideas and research as well, with help from jr's3800 (Admin) as well.

Both Bob and Bill are Gearheads here. The cost is a FRACTION of a new UIM.

And post any questions you may have in this topic.

(Cleaned that up for you, a bit.)
In answer to your questions: That chance that it'* the head gaskets is very close to zero. Reason being: (According to reports on this club) we've **never** had head gaskets go.

You'll need upper and lower intake manifold gaskets and a new upper intake. As others have mentioned, get a Bob Dillon rebuild from Bob Dillon here in this club.

You'll need sockets and wrenches, rags, scraping tools, and maybe a wire brush to remove old gasket material. Cleaning fluid like Brake cleaner may be helpful too. Even if the task seems a little bit complex, you have all the combined knowledge of all the people in this group to help you get through any part that might stump you. We have documented the process in threads on this club complete with photographs that should be helpful in guiding you through the repair.

You know, there are cases where you don't want to do this yourself, and you might find a club member nearby to lend a hand. When mine blew in December I had zero time to mess with it and needed my car back immediately, so I had my dealer do it. It was expensive. If you have some time at all, and the ability to take your time and ask here for help if you need it as you go along, you'll find the collective wisdom of this group to be an amazing resource. If mine went today, I'd do it myself.

Well it will be easy enough to tell if you pull it.
You might have had lower gaskets fail, maybe the upper manifold
and upper gasket were replaced without doing the lower.

We've seen that before too.

Nope and its still not fixed to my understanding.

On the repair, I just did mine back in April. Its not a tuff job and once you do it, it will be easy the next time. You can practically do the whole job with a 1/4" ratchet and a few sockets. You will need a low range Torque wrench capable of going as low as 89 in-lbs (10n-m) for the upper and 11ft-lbs (15n-m) for the lower. Cleaning all the parts is the hardest and longest part of the job.
