Afterburn is right - more info. After I thought about my previous post - it doesn't make any sense. I don't think you can get pressure at the intake runner where it attaches to the head. Possibly you are seeing air escaping from under the engine cover, that is pressurized by the cooling fan. And if an intake valve was stuck open, you would hear that poping though the intake. Something else is going on. Have you pulled the valve covers off to see if everything is still where it should be - broken rocker arm, or broken elephant foot, or striped adjusting screw......?
