Take this how you want, but replacing the intake requires taking off so much, it might not be a bad time to do timing chains and tensioners. The factory chain tensioners didn't have a gasket between them and the block so they bleed off oil pressure and cause slop and excessive wear on the guides.

I had the intake go bad on my 01 250 w/5.4 and I took it down to block, had heads machined (they like to warp due to lack of coolant flow in the back of engine) with new valve seals, new timing kit up front and all new gaskets. That motor ran like a top after that. At 288,000 miles it still had factory crosshatching on the cylinder walls.

I had maybe $600 into it all said and done.

Well for right now I'm just gonna replace the intake manifold. Everything else is in good shape on it. With the way i get bored and trade off trucks more than likely it won't be around this time next year.
