    do i need longer intake manifold bolts or not for Hondata intake gasket??

    ok.. i'm just wondering if i'm going to need longer bolts for the intake mani. if i'm gonna be using a Hondata intake manifold gasket w/ a blox manifold.. i was looking at them earlier and it looks like they may be too short.. any info appreciated..

    i'd like to find out before i pull the damn thing apart.. if i do need them.. what size should i get??

    I'm pretty sure those are studs in the head, not bolts (PITA to remove). Find out what the thickness of the gasket is and compare it to how much stud is sticking past the nuts on your mani.

    Looks to me like you don't have enough threads left, but hondata makes no mention of needing longer studs in their installation instructions.

    ok.. well, heres another question.. how thick is the gasket.. i know the oem gasket isnt thick at all

    i should be fine.. i may shave off some material off the manifold mounting points just to be safe..
