You could also use the Felpros for the lower gaskets. I've had great success with my Felpro lowers. No degradation after 50,000 miles. When I pulled them off, they looked just as new from the day I installed them.

I'm planning on the felpro'* for the upper and lower, as well as the o-ring gaskets. They seem to be the best and most recommended. I always use those at my shop so why switch.

Ok well just to update you guys, i got it all apart today. Went pretty smoothly, of course i found exactly what everyone thought when the upper manifold came off. Full of oil/coolant. I got it stripped down an cleaned the heads and dried out all the coolant i could see, and the surfaces. The coolant elbow broke :( but i was expecting that. I have to get to the dealer before they close at 5 tomorrow to get a new one. Besides that i have to pick up the new LIM gaskets and the new o-rings, and the plugs. I should be all set after that, i got the new intake today. Dorman, came with everything. But anyways i'll keep you guys posted, should be up and running tomorrow.

when you take the plugs out make sure you get as much of the fluid out of the cylinders as possible. If the manifolds were full my guess is the cylinders are also.

change the oil, and then in less than a few hundred miles do it again. Then it should be all set.

Ok so i got it done tonight, and after having a little trouble starting it i got it to purr like a kitten. But there'* a lot of white smoke coming out the pipe. It doesn't seem to be burning it off, cause the radiator stays full, but the exhaust is really sweet. I have to change the oil yet, the lifters are really ticking, but do you think the smoke just is burning off coolant? I hope so... because it runs perfectly smooth. Any ideas?

You may need to let the cat burn off the moisture it has in it... As for the ticking lifters... Get the oil changed ASAP... And change it again in a couple hundred miles...

As long as you are not using coolant it should be fine...

my guess is that it is just burning the coolant that got into places it shouldn't have.

You REALLY need to change that oil
