    Hey guys I'm gonna use a intake manifold lift plate on my 308 to put it back into the car.

    Now this is my first time using one of these plates but have heard they are stronger than using the head bolts .( something about more bolts and area all that good jazz you know )

    Any bolt recommened ? Torque yes or no? Precautions ? Please people who have done this before .

    Thanks God Bless!

    I did mine from the intake but did not use a plate. Studs in each corner.

    I've done it a few ways. When I used a plate on the intake though, I did a snug past finger tight

    I was thinking of using some bolts with washers for mine just seems safer to me . Opinions on that?

    Thanks for replies !

    God Bless!
