Default intake help?

So I've been searching for a small coolant leak for months with no luck. I've replaced almost every part of the system due to rust, radiator, thermostat, water pump, flush, flush, flush. But I recently saw on a thread that someone had a small leak at the intake, and wouldn't yahoo know it looks like that might b my problem as well. So my question is why not just.replace the intake since ill have it all torn apart anyway? So what kind of intake should I replace it with? Keep in mind I don't know anything about this, but others list intake as.one of they're mods so seems like I should. Thanks for any help u can give.

its not the intake that is leaking, its the gasket. if it is leaking, I would replace it right away, coolant can get in your oil and fry your main bearings.

Yes I meant the gasket lol of course. But I'm thinking it's also a good time to change the intake manifold, I just know what direction to go with it?

only intake manifold there is, is a Marine intake, a cut down Holley stealth ram (lot of work) and the eldlebrock 2114 (decent amount of work). You don't really need an intake unless you are going turbo or supercharged.


cold air intake is easy, K&n, aem, or airaid. s10forum.com for sale section usually has one up for sale once in a while, believe their is one now. they also have both the holley intake manifold and 2114, but its a good amount of work.
