Reseal Intake Plenum

I have located a small leak on the passenger side plenum. I was going to order some new stock replacement plenums along with the anti crush sleeves. I have e-fuel so my fuel bowl and pump have been removed. It doesn't appear that the turbo will need removed in order to remove the passenger side. I seem to recall reading that my 97 has the 10 bolt plenums. I also recall hearing about one bolt that is difficult to remove.
Any tips or tricks here? Turbo on or off? What about that one problem bolt? Thanks!

Re: Reseal Intake Plenum

If you just do the passenger side you should not need to remove the turbo. I also had to do this a few years ago. Its pretty straight forward, just takes time.

Make sure to use the mortorcraft gray rtv. Its good stuff.

How did you discover the leak? Are you sure the drivers side isn't also leaking?

Re: Reseal Intake Plenum

I pressurized the Intake tract with compressed air. I could hear air hissing out, sprayed soapy water and it started hissing and making bubbles.

Re: Reseal Intake Plenum

Says it won't fit with stock turbo. I have a stock turbo and E99 spider. My stock plenums lasted 20 years. I'd like to go back with stock if they are available.

Intake Plenum Manifold Cover - Early 99 - Riffraff Diesel Performance

You might call them to see when they will be back in stock.

Why do you need to buy a new one? Why can't you reuse the old one?

Re: Reseal Intake Plenum

Just seems like parts like that get tweaked when removing them, then they leak. When I remove old parts, I like to go with new stuff it oem is available.

Re: Reseal Intake Plenum

I bought that eBay plenum. Can I buy that gray silicone at Ford, or can I use "The Right Stuff?"
