Its easier if you clean up the lower intake to find the hidden bolts, but I suppose you would be able to find them just by guessing before you clean it up.


Our new L36 intake manifold expert.

Don't forget the two hidden bolts under the UIM for the LIM. They're near the #5 and #2 intake runners INSIDE the top of the LIM.

That was fantastic. I would LOVE for someone to do that with me. I could not tackle it, but I would love for my 98 SSEi to have that work done....

Your cure was the supercharger...*grumbling...*

Thanks Billy and EK98, I'm remotely confident I can succeed in not blowing up my car

He may not have an UIM failure, however, the LIM gaskets are still very shoddy on the SII L67s.

This applies to every car here (particularly S2'*) and the LIM gaskets. S1 LIM gaskets typically go well beyond 125k or more without any issues.

Typical series two gaskets at 133,000 miles.

They may not appear to be leaking, however they do not look like they are in good shape.

Wow you guys are really brave......skilled to take apart the top of your engine and do your own work. I wish I could do stuff like that. I know I talk down on the 3800 for being old but its really nice to have an engine you can really work on and fix yourself.

Did this work yield noticable performance increase?
