I am getting ready to change these gaskets as we were smelling burning oil all winter. Does anyone know the part # for the hoses that everyone is suggesting be changed as well?My recommendation for anyone else trying to do this install is to go ahead and purchase replacement hoses and just cut them. You'll save yourself a but load of grief.
I just changed mine and they are still leaking in some places the bolts are down as far as they should go except one but its not leaking at that one. I think those tabs that you bend to hold the gasket in place might have effected its sealing ability. I'm gonna take the passenger off and try again hopefully that's the only problem. Here is the only leak I could visibly see View attachment 13465 you can see the discoloration on the shiny metal on the lower valve cover

Brilliant!I finished this project today. A few notes.
First, I stripped the head of two plenum hex bolts. I was afraid I was going to have to drill them, but found a much simpler solution on the web. Get a 12mm, 12 point socket and hammer it onto the bolt head, and remove the bolt. It works way better than I expected. I only hammered a few times, and the bolts came out easily!
