Installing the 2008 Intake manifold
Here is what Ive found for step by step. Of course its wrong because you bleed the fuel FIRST right? Is there any tips yall that have installed the 08? Any adapters you need besides the ones from airram? Ive searched and read a lot but everyone says installation was easy but that you've had to get a part or two but haven't specified on all parts and adapters to make this work. Ive after specifics! Does the iac connector to that big open connector on the top side of the manifold? if so will it just plug right up? if not what part did you get?
