well that gasket on the manifold should be that big of a deal to replace. there are some other threads that have technics about finding air leaks like this. someone please correct me if i'm wrong, but i beleive they suggest getting a can of WD-40 or something and barely spraying it around parts that you think the leak is around and if the motor gets a small boost when you spray it there then you can pin point the spot.
someone please correct me or by all means go into more detail, i just wanted to get the basic idea across, lol.
i'll see if i can find where they describe this process alittle more thurl.
