Q: Is there a difference in intake heights?
A: Yes. Select the correct intake for your vehicle, and check your vehicle's hood clearance before selecting a high rise intake.
Q: Can intake bolts be overtightened?
A: Yes. Tighten the intake bolts to manufacturer's specifications. See the engine service manual for torque specifications and sequence.
Q: Can a leaking intake gasket cause an engine miss?
A: Yes. It could suck additional air into the cylinder, which will cause less efficient combustion.
Q: Are there signs that there may be a problem with a vehicle's intake?
A: Yes. Reduced engine power and abnormal sounds or vibrations are signs that there may be a problem with a vehicle's intake. Engine oil and/or coolant leaks/consumption can also be signs of an intake issue.
