If you want to use an HV3 you need to use an OEM intake (at least that was the case when I called them a few years back to figure that out). I have a Dorman upper intake manifold on my Intrigue and I have no complaints about it.

What is the full gasket set you are looking it? I'm pretty sure they sell the OEM gasket kit which is exactly what you need.

In case you hadn't seen it, this will be very helpful for you during the repair.

If you aren't going to do the HV3, get the one from iNeedParts.com ( http://www.ineedparts.com/inde.....t_id=17806 ) as it fixes the issue w/ the EGR melting the plastic. I installed it on my 04 Impala when I had it and it was great quality
