Default Intake Manifolds: should I buy?

OK, I got a series I 3800. And some guy is selling both and upper and lower intake manifolds from a series II 3800 (199.

Would replacing my intake manifolds with these series II intake manifolds give me a horsey power increase? (are the intake manifolds any different from series I to II?) Would those parts fit on my engine.

I'll post the pics depending on the answer I get.

I don't think they will fit. Different bolt hole locations and cooling passages...

You do not want the intake manifolds off a Series 2. They are the ones that crack and warp from heat.

Quite right!
Series II'* will not work due to different bolt patterns & coolant passage locations.

Both are right, yours are better, and they'll fit.

"Both (of them) are right, yours (that you have already) are better, and they'll fit (they're on there already aren't they)."

Quit trying to flame me, this isn't Hard OCP
