You should fix it as soon as you can.

How much oil are you going thru? Losing any coolant??

Engines Express in Tyler will do it.
To remove and replace the manifold it would be $307 just in labor.
Which, isn't really all that bad...

BTW, where you at?

It can be hard to find someone that would work on it that is NOT a buddy of some kind.
Cool, I live in Tyler. I noticed Butler Alignment and Brake in one of your pictures in your profile. Thats why I asked.

Yep.
Could be a clogged cat aswell.
And an overdue tune up.
And 3.55 gearing.
But the plenum is a big part, fix that first.

I have not done the plenum yet, that is why I got a quote from Engines Express.
I purely do not have the time. Between work and homework, there isn't the 8 hours I would need doing it the first time.
That's why I was gonna take it to a shop.

Do you have the FSM yet? If not, download it. It is in the FAQ's section.
You can find the torque procedure for the belly pan and the manifold.

48-84 in-lbs.
