The intake manifold is the chrome or silver item that bolts directly to the head. It has the air intake tube connected to an item that sits on top of the intake manifold. There should be four tubes that connect it to the engine. The leak in this gasket will confuse the computer and let in raw and uncontrolled air. The performance of the engine will diminish greatly.
