      Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Plastic:

      Delivery was fast and packaging was in good condition with plenum being in good condition. Everything needed for installation was included, including a new PC valve. The new plenum eliminated the coolant leak occurring where the plenum connected to the base plate. Hopefully the new plenum will eliminate the coolant leak once and forever. Advance Auto Parts had the best price including delivery than the competitors.

            Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Plastic:

            This upper intake kit from dorman is an excellent OEM replacement for an L series GM 3.8L 231 V6. The Pontiacs, Buicks, Chevrolets, etc with this engine are well known to have bulletproof power trains with the exception of a couple things, the intake manifold being one of them. After installing lower intake gaskets and this upper intake kit from dorman, my 93 pontiac bonneville hasn't leaked coolant, hydro-locked, or had an intake leak at all... FINALLY. I highly recommend this kit, it includes all gaskets and hardware with the exception of the PCV valve spring, make sure you save that. It's usually reusable.

            Not quite a exact fit, but worked,

            By Peyton

            from Lynchburg Va

            Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Plastic:

            On my 1994 Bonneville SE, the manifold bosses on Cylinders 2,3 5 interfered with the stock injectors.
            After some struggle, filed them a little, and everything worked fine.
            Also Please Note! you must install the supplied PCV valve into the manifold with your old spring.
            otherwise the engine idles at 2000 rpm!
            Now I am very happy.
