Default Intake manifold gasket replacement

I have a 2005 Dodge Caravan with the 3.3 6L engine in it. Does anyone have any good instructions on replacing the manifold gasket? Or even if you have the intake manifold bolt torque specs that would be helful. Thank you for any assistance.
Bill

the upper is plastic and the lower is the aluminum intake where you are leaking

thank you i got to it seems my bolts were loose. I tried to retorque and did another pressure test..no luck got to replace the gasket. So I am at the point of removing the fuel rail the injectors are so flimsy. what's the safest way to remove the fuel rail without breaking them. The clamps are all off (engine ate one) and the bolts are out.
