$20.00 in parts, a few hours labor to lift the intake a bit and replace them.

Does the car run well other wise ?
No CEL, no codes.

The car runs well otherwise. I do have a air sucking noise when I'm accelerating. Kind of sounds like an aftermarket intake but I'm on a regular stock panel filter.

I've taken the intercooler off before which is quite simple but Is there a write-up on taking off the intake manifold and replacing the o-rings?
