Probably holds one of the braces in place over by the A/C compressor, or some such.

Hoping mine tested fine- I saw the TSB that instructed to hook up vacuum gauge to pcv system and look for pressure or vacuum. Hadn't used that gauge in 25 years, so my adapters are long gone- So what I did was held my thumb over the PCV hose for a few seconds to fell vac or pressure- I felt no vacuum and when I removed thumb-I got some blow by wafting gently out of the crankcase- so I guess I'm ok.

Well, the plenum if you haven't already.

Aside from that, just clean everything really well, while the motor is out of the way.

Im looking to replace my plenum on my 99 360 in the near future. While i am doing this i want to put on a performance intake manifold. Which one is the best to do? I want one that uses the same throttle body, bolt pattern etc.

You really only get two choices. Hughes Air Gap, or Mopar M1. The mopar manifold is becoming hard to find.... Hughes still seems to be supplying the air gap. Neither option is cheap.
