I'm changing my intake manifold gaskets soon, first time for me. I have a 94'350 TBI 5.7L. Any tips before i get started? There are a poopoo ton of wires and brackets ill need to remove. And will i need to remove my valve covers? Just put new gaskets on em so id rather not.

Any tips appreciated.

Funny you should ask; here's a write-up I did with pics on an intake gasket job on my old '94. https://www.chevytalk.org/fusionbb/showtopic.php?ti...

It's linked in our FAQ post which is at the top of this forum listing. Lots of great stuff in there!

Not 100% necessary to remove the valve covers. I did it just to clean them and repaint. Having them out of the way might make setting the intake back down, your results may vary.

Take pictures of the different connections.... close enough to see detail, and far enough away so you can tell where/what things are in relation to other things. You could also use masking tape and label things.

If you think that there is a ton on yours dont try anything newer. It only gets worse.
They are pretty easy on yours, especially with the great writeup posted
