When i pulled my intake off i noticed around the ports looked like unburnt fuel around the bottom. Is this a bad gasket or a vacuum leak?



I know the port looks dirty, i cleaned that all out before i put it back on.

if you squint, it looks like the O ring goes between the edge of the filth and the red line. I think its doing its job?

yeah the gaskets are almost never true to the ports. you'll always have some kind of build up there unless you decide that's irritating and gasket match the head and intake.

ok cool i wasnt sure, i didnt replace the gaskets because they all looked good still but i did tighten the bottom ones first because i thought it was leaking a little at the bottom.

My idle seems kinda high but i havnt yet hit the 200 mile mark after i reset the battery so i hope that it drops back to normal.

Maybe that brake booster is leaking
