:werd:Use an impact gun or you'll hate yourself when your breaker/cheater combo snaps the bolts.
Either that, or you will break your hand when the socket gives. (Painful personal experience.)[/b]
I'm wondering why in the hell they're that tight to begin with. I just removed my upper and lower intake, no problem. I have an '02 with the 3.0L OHV engine. My upper is plastic and the lower is aluminum I presume. Once you get it off you may want to check carefully for warpage. Just my opinion though.Blown head gasket, time to tear it apart, and already running into problems with the intake plenum bolts, they seem to be over torqued and i cant get them to budge (even with a breaker bar) any suggestions?[/b]
