I did the upper and lower intake gaskets last week using that write up. One note, the back couple of bolts are tricky. I had to remove the wiring harness from the ECU to access one of them. Good luck!

Yea 8 for the upper. Do your self a favor and screw them back into the plenum before putting it on... I dropped one as well and it rolled down on top of the trans. Had to get it through the trap door under the center console... much profanity was used that night.

You don't have to take the screws all the way out of the upper plenum, just loosen enough to free them from the lower intake and it will come free. That way you don't lose or drop screws.
