Default intake

Mine never failed but I changed the gaskets @ 75k due to external leaks.

Ok...I'm an oppressor.

Buy supercharged and never have the problem.

My UIM never failed. I changed it at 77,000 miles last year as preventative maintenance. I also did the lower gaskets. The lowers were trashed. IMO, we need to be more concerned with the lower gaskets. If I were to have a failure, I'm convinced it would have derived from the lower gaskets.

Now, at 118,000 miles, my upper intake gasket is leaking. I'll probably tear into it next weekend (once the repaired and sleeved UIM comes from Bob Dillon).

double post

Lumina is going strong with 149K on it and I believe is all original (bought with 95K) but the tranny seems like if it is beat on it might go (which might be soon now that my bro is driving it )
