You have something wrong going on if your intake nuts are constantly loosening up. At most you should only have to check after initially replacing the intake and insulator blocks and gaskets perhaps they may be slightly lose after some heat cycles.

But check to see that your installing the gaskets properly and that the intake studs did not strip the threads in the heads from overtorquing.

everything is new for me. i think mine has to do with the new injector blocks being compressed due to the gaskets not fitting the ports on the blocks. but thats my issue.

did you check your nuts. (yea, i left that one open).

what are your AFR's at idle and cruise? mine at 2800 or so is upper 15's, like 15.7 or 8. thats why i still think i have an air leak. it was 16.7 before i fixed the major intake leak.
