Re: Intake to Head Bolt Size

The 3/8 X 16 UNC studs should be right I don't know the correct length, my best guess is that they would be about 1 3/4 inches long. But to figure it all out you would only need to know the depth of the stud holes in the head, the thickness of the intake manifold flange, the intake gasket thickness,...

You can check what gear ratio your truck was built with by decoding the door tag info (Warntee or ID tag). Once you have that you can compare what the rear axle ratio that's installed. Sure sounds like it's not geared properly, changing the rear gears to what is normally use with that trans will hel...
