if you are using the M5 paper gasket,i would just coat the paper gasket with a light coat of motor oil. do the same thing between the intake gasket side and the paper. you might also check
the air intake plenum bracket where it is attach to the engine they are prone to cracking due to
the high frequency vivebration of the engine.

You might consider getting the Korman Heavy Duty Accumulator Support too. Costs around $15. Check the two smaller 90 degree manifold fittings to see if they are loose. If so use Locktite sleeve retainer on them. Also check the large one on the accumulator itself. The fix for this one is to drill tap the accumulator and put in a small set screw. If this pops off at WOT - very lean, very bad.
