changing intake question...

just got a leak in my plastic intake on my 96 bird.pulled an intake off a 96/97 crown vic police car that had the aluminum crossover.was wondering if the intake gaskets were re-useable?

also saw a 94 lincoln mark VIII that hadn't been stripped(yet)...would the maf work on a bird? improve performance???

never been able to get the search function to help my inquiries...

the intake gaskets are techincally reusable, but after this many years on the car they are probably brittle and wont reseal well with the new intake. its safest to spend the $20 or so on new gaskets and not worry about it

lol I used felpros on my car for about 6 months and gave them to supergordo for free because they looked fine and reuseable, we went to put them on his brothers car that had an intake gasket leak and it made it worse, just get new ones, its worth the $25-$30 to do it once.
