Default Intake leak

Ok, now for the real deal.........How many of "us" B'ville owners have had to replace the intake gasket and/or intake itself ? How many miles when you did...........??

I guess now that I know I will probably end up replacing the gasket and the intake........misery loves company........

Do not use the TB spacers available for the 3.8 since a few GP owners I know runs into a lot of blown gasket because of it.
