LIM Warped?

Ok, Im getting my LIM gasket replaced again. 2nd time and the car has only 35k miles.

Im being told the LIM is warped. They'll send it to a machine shop to have it planed but that will cost $120-$160. They can order a new LIM if I wanted, or find a used one for cheap.

Should I look into aftermarket, have it planed (i dont know the cons), or go with a used one?



Also - Has anyone else been told they have a warped intake?

I have never heard of a warped LIM.
I would just try to find a used one, aftermarket or junkyard, maybe even ebay.

I plan on getting rid of it come May/June - so theres really no point in further modding it. To the junkyard we go! Thanks though Rand

That sucks. I have never heard of a warped intake.... I have heard of and experienced them leaking though. The solution I had in mind won't help much with your leak. But, you're doing the right thing to get em fixed.
