    Learn from my mistake: do not be tempted to use one of those box-end ratchet wrenches on those downpipes flange nuts, even if they fit and it would be easier than a stack of extensions and flex joint with a socket. The box-end will slowly tighten into the taper of the space (with the nut still not tightened down) until you have to hammer the wrench off.

      Manifold gasket? Really. Man it didn't sound like that at all to me. My experience of exhaust gasket leaks is you get a "PFUFTT-PFUFFT-PFFUFT" sound every time that one cylinder is on the exhaust stroke.

      To me yours sounded like what you would hear at the tail pipe, a burble that you would get from all 6 cylinders exhausting.

        In my experience, unmetered air (i.e. an intake leak) will cause a lean mixture. Less pull on the fuel across the venturi, so less fuel for the amount of air drawn in. This shows up in real time with an air/fuel meter and an 02 sensor in the exhaust down pipe.
