Too much HP from an intake manifold? Cmon... There is a replacement for the Series II that is aftermarket, but it'* got thicker walls that don't crack.

i'd like to make a correction.............
not as prone!!!!! they're still pretty common
The Series 1 OCCASSIONALLY has a different problem. They don't crack. They don't erode. Only the seal fails. It can be replaced while retaining the upper intake. This is relatively RARE. Most cars will go to their lifetime without a failure (series 1 L27).

1. Weld up a really cool upper intake out of aluminum sheetmetal.
2. Bolt it up to the car.
3. Go driving. Wow. Gobs of power. Really cool.
4. BOOM (sound of shattering planetary gears in differential of 4T65E transaxle)
5. Oops.

That'* about what happened.

i'm just going by my experience then. when we bought my car at 100k, we had to replace the intake, and my dad replaces them pretty often at work.
the k motor more often of course, but the series 1'* enough!

I'm still not sure on that due to the fact that the EGR did not exist on the 92.
