    I am in the process of changing out my gaskets for my intake runners, but there are pieces that are stuck to the metal and are really difficult to remove. What is the easiest way to remove the stuck pieces w/o damaging the metal? :huh: Thanx for any help. :thumb:

    What are you trying now? Maybe some type of solvent combined with a razor blade flat against the surface should get it up.

    I got it off now...thanks for the input. I was using intake cleaner and a razor blade. The pieces of gasket around the bolts was where it was stuck on and they were pretty damn stubborn.
