Ok, I just done a quick Google search and see the intake issue was on the 96 & 97 models. This car is a 95 so that should apply to this car.
Correct, the 94/95 intake never fails, but the EGR ports do get clogged up frequently. The 96/97 setup is better for performance and doesn't have the EGR problem, but eventually the manifolds themselves crack and fail.
