Hey guys, replaced the dual 4 intake with a single one and had a perf valve job done to the edel heads and started it up finally yesterday and it sounds mean,meaner i mean,and am getting tons of white smoke out both exhausts.Head gaskets are on correct and intake gaskets too.I guess im taking the intake off again to see whats up.Any ideas on what too look for specifically? Thanks

Sounds like you got a water leak somewhere - or maybe just some from when you yanked it?....Should clear up pretty quick though. hmmm Whats your oil look like? If you yank the intake, clean it up good an just set it in without gaskets to see if the faces match up good first....you can use some playdough to give you an idea if there is any large gaps/angle issues. It may be that intake was milled differently..? Was it used?

I've had a problem with the intake gasket 'blowing' between the water passages on either end and the outer intake ports. Once I switched to steel-laminate intake gaskets, no more blow-outs!

What dual quad did you have? Why did you swap it out?
