I just ordered the manifold from my parts department ($110). I need to know: Are any of the gaskets reusable when switching to the 2000 style intake manifold. If not, what gaskets need to be replaced/ordered???

thanks

It comes from the factory with a green like rubber gasket seal, they are supposed to be reusable, If you have done anything with you TB
it's just like the gasket on the stock TB.

Milan

p.s. Just remember how all the connections go back on.....

Auto X, I reused my egr gasket and my tb gasket, they were fine. Gains? not much yet, I must really need cam gears
Yes I did port it some and all went well, I'll hope for more when I reset the processor.
