Question a little rusty...

I was wondering if any of you have had an issue with rust forming on the intake manifold...if so what rust remover/preventive did you use... and what is the best way to clean out the inside... i am going to eventually replace it with a skunk2 but the wifey won't let me drop the cash for that right now...

no worries, i have just never seen the factory intake manifold rust. The exhaust manifold on every ever i have seen has been rusted or starting to do to the extreme heat.

get it ported and coated, you will gain preformance and it wont rust, even though i have never heard of one rusting all through. mine had 185k and never had any issues besides the surface rust on the outside.
