Jim it'* the gasket between the heads and the lower intake, nothing to do with the L36 issues. SC cars should do this more then NA, because of the pressure.

Sounds about right to me, you could do the job yourself i bet Custom

SC cars still have intake gaskets....

We can't suffer from the intake suicide that the NA'* are suspect of, but occasionally a intake gasket can give up the ghost.

Thus my simple question.
