Default Intake Manifold

Prolly gonna sound dumb, but I was Just thinking how tricky it is to get that intake mani on. can I just get it on the head while its off, then just bolt the head with it on? i dont wanna go out side to check the motor and see how itmounts right now. but I cant tihnk of anything that would be in the way?
Thanks.

no problem put it together and be done with it. it wont interfere with the motor install or head install.

If you can, definately put the intake on the head outside the car. Some of the bolts will be a complete PITA to get to in the car.....

Dave,

The starter and alternator doesn't need to be install before the head. You can install it after you put everything together.

I'm assuming by silicone, he means RTV silicone. That's a good thing to do when your putting a head back on a motor.

Don't worry so much man. Just take your time.

Lol Pai, sorry I didnt get your phone call, was at work. I would have suggested bolting up the AC, PS, Alternator, Starter, and wiring them all up prior to reinstalling the head, but thats just me. Did you get all the tranny bolts on yet? Dont forget those cuz I only put three or 4 of em on to pull the shizz together.
