Just finished this. Will know tomorrow morning if it did the trick. Gaskets were $5.25/each at my local dealer. The walk-thru was very helpful, Thanks.

The clearance on the drivers side because of the fuel lines sure did make things difficult. And, the the intake manifold bolt closest to the turbo took me a while to figure out how to get to it (ended up using a screwdriver to pry just enough space between a hose and the manifold to get the socket through).

Aside from, that it went well. Took us about 2 hours.

Update (Day 1): Was 39 out this morning, which would is low enough to get the rough idle - Zero stumbling and overall the idle felt much better.
Update (Day 2): Was 37 this morning. Idle was smooth. : )
