FelPro (Federal Mogul) is an OEM supplier to many vehicle manufacturers. So are Mahle and Victor-Reinz - plus others. "AC Delco" is a re-box of any of the above - depends on which has the contracts this year.

Luckily FelPro was locally in stock, so I grabbed a new one and installed. Cad-driver…removing the intake manifold was actually easy and straight forward. In fact, changing the plugs and wires was more of a pain in my ass.

After, even polished the fuel rails and bridge.

When you put the intake on. Lube the gasket material on the new intake gasket lightly with oil. It will help them seat. And as you torque the intake down they won’t stretch or fold over..as you tighten the intake.

Great job! You're right about the plugs and wires...not like the good old days of the 327 in the 67 Camaro! It was easy to do any thing on that car!

My grandpa used to tell me how they sat in the engine bay on older cars. How nice would that be?

I shouldn’t complain…after all the LQ9 is just massive.
There actually is quite a bit of space, but really kind of "down in there" to work on and reasonably fixable for the determined home mechanic...

I should have added this to the reply...THANK YOU to the administrators of this forum! I would not be able to maintain my vehicle as I have without CadillacForums!! Thanks again!

So, how's this beotch run now? Idles like a Lexus commercial with a wine glass on top of the manifold and it doesn't fall off?
