Lower Intake Gasket
I think my lower intake gasket is leaking. How hard is it to replace? I planned on taking all that stuff off the get the intakes ported anyway. I was just wondering from the people that have done it already how involved it really is.

its not that hard, jsut pull of the throttle cable/cruise cable. then unbolt the egr/related parts, unbolt the upper intake, pull off some vacumm lines, then pop off the fuel lines from the fuel rail, unbolt the lower intake. there are some minor random brackets that will need to come off, as well as the heater hose "hard line" but its not too bad.

Yeah, from what I remember when doing the head gaskets in my 89, it was pretty easy, certainly wasn't the toughest part of doing the HGs.
