Upper Intake Gasket Change

Well after a few years of avoiding it I am finally changing my upper intake gaskets. I believe I have all the gaskets i need. I have the 3 smaller rubber gaskets and the long paper gasket. Will I need any more gaskets, specialty tools or anything else? I have a garage stocked with tools but I want to make sure I have everything I need before I start. I read the write up by CAW and it is great. I just want to be really prepared for anything. Any advice?

Etorx so you can remove the fuel rail to change that gasket.

You should also get some injector o-rings as well. Your technically suppose to replace them whenever you pull the injectors. Not only that but 2 of my o-rings got torn in the process of pulling the fuel rail.

Thanks guys. Never thought of picking o-rings. While I'm there I might as well change them and clean the injectors.

I did this twice and forgot o-rings both times. Mine were all good.


Just goop them up with a bit of Vaseline on the install.
