Been hooning it around about a week now. Put the spark plug sock on the CTS to protect it from heat, now it reads correctly. And a now a quick summary. Pros, holy shit this car drives great. Still wicked pleased. Drove it out to the beach sunday, 200 mile round trip rode awesome. Nice and quiet. Ac is charged. Cons, back of the intake has a leak. Going to have to dive into that tomorrow with just 48 hours until I leave for wagonfest. Should go pretty quick. I only did the same job a month ago.  Laughing Mad. Minus that, car is still awesome. Almost sure I'm done with the motor, for now. Really.  Laughing

Thanks man. It's 270 each way. Straight shot on I-90

Bit of deja vu this morning. Intake came off nice and within an hour. Always takes longer to take all the bullshit off. Inside staying cool now. Going to drop it back on tonight when it's a bit cooler.

Well, the car doesn't overheat anymore, and I got it timed right. But now the intake is leaking again.  Evil or Very Mad Rolling Eyes Mad Surprised Shocked Guess we'll see if a third time is the charm. If someone ever invents a 1 piece seal for these....

I think i've grown too attached to this damn thing to scrap it. I might go nutty enough to pull the motor out again though.  Laughing

I use the copper spray on both sides of the side gaskets and a nice healthy 1/4" bead of black rtv for the front and rear NO rubber seals front or back. Torque the bolts in the right sequence and to the right spec.
Never EVER had an intake leak.

This is important. Torque wrench to spec and sequence is a must. Also, when laying down that THICK RTV bead, make it a little thicker at the ends to be sure and seal the corners.

And there's no such thing as too much RTV, I chucked the rubber gaskets out on my 3800's and put a thick bead on the ends, no leaks.

I've never known anyone who used those stupid rubber garbage "gaskets" they belong in the trash. THICK RTV and it won't leak.

I may have been a bit premature saying it's the intake. Went under the car to install my new starter shield and wrap my OTA's and the starter was soaked with oil. Cleaned it all up, as well as the trans, exhaust etc. Parked the car overnight on some plywood, still dry. Looks like it was just residual. I'm going to keep an eye on it but for now it looks like it's holding.

No no. Once the motor was out the whole undercarriage was scrubbed clean. Once it started leaking a few weeks ago thats when I didn't clean it again.

Not too long after the Intake Incident Fishah move to a ah, facility someplace in the Midwest and I don't think he has been seen in person since by anyone here. Occasionally he is allowed to use a computer with internet access, probably in the library. Some may have an idea of how difficult this can be. If you happen to have any contact with him please don't make any mention of the Intake Incident or refer to his place of residence as "the institute". We don't want to cause any setbacks. Smile
