How to Install a Performance Intake Manifold and Replace Gaskets (Dyno PROOF)

  • Published on May 29, 2018
  • Learn how to replace an intake manifold and intake manifold gaskets in your car or truck. I am upgrading my intake manifold from a non PI intake to a PI performance intake which will hopefully add some Horsepower and Torque! I also show you how to install a water pump, and how to tap the intake port for a coolant temperature sensor.
    Performance Intake:
    Extendable Ratchet:
    Torque Wrench:
    3/8's Tap and 37/64" Drill Bit set:
    Center Punch:
    Heater Tube and Fitting:
    Intake Manifold Gasket:

    I really admire the work you put in all the videos. I check for your new videos almost daily and always wonder what takes you so long. Everytime I see the new video I'm like "okay, this was worth waiting". The work you have to put in repairing the car and in addition to that, the work you have to put in moving and placing the camera so every bolt you touch is visible for the viewer and finally editing the video the way you do it (every transition, every splitscreen, all the bolts to mark and these things you do with graphs) must take hours and hours. I really appreciate it and hope that you'll keep doing such a great videos. Even though I don't even have a car, I always enjoy your videos, so one day I buy myself a car, i can do it at home just because of you. Thank you!

    Hi guys! I need to remove my intake manifold to get at a knock sensor but I'm having trouble finding what gasket my car uses for the replacement. Does anyone know where I could find this information? Also, can I just use RTV gasket maker instead? Thanks!

    Wouldn't you generally want a retune if you put in something as big as a new intake.

    Instead of replacing it with this stock plastic intake, we will be replacing it with this plastic intake.

    Yo you should really add a air intake it’s not that expensive and you can get more power and cooler air to the car

    You don’t have to tap the intake. Years back, probably 15 years ago, I just ran that temp sensor to the head. There’s already a threaded port there. Worked great.

    if the stock one was cracked did you dyno it with a cracked intake or did you dyno it before it wanted to die

    Why you put alot of high performance parts on on your cars but always got cheap batteries on your cars like that 90 day warranty on that ford car instead having a AGM battery

    Why not just cut the alignment bolt head off and allow the new "pin " to run wild and use that as a guide for placing the manifold?
