Default Lower Intake Manifold Concerns/questions

I have a 1997 SSEi that I'm going to be replacing the lower intake manifold gasket on as well as the supercharger coupler. I'm hoping someone can point me in the direction of thorough instructions and maybe a parts list for the job so I can double check mine. I have the Haynes manual and the books that the dealers have for the vehicles and neither one is descriptive enough to my liking. I have the */C coupler from zzp, the intake manifold gasket(not sure if my car has the locating pins or not), */C gasket and I'm doing the valve cover gaskets as well. If someone could post a link for this or even tell me theirselves that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time!

Here ya go. But we recommend getting the aluminum framed LIM gaskets...

Thanks a ton! I definitely went with Fel-pro aluminum gaskets. GM used those piece of crap plastic gaskets to begin and I'm not making the same mistakes they did. I consider myself lucky if this is the original gasket as I have 176000 miles on my baby. Again, thanks for the help, very much appreciated..
