Make sure to get an upper intake manifold gasket.

 

While you have the plenum off, get about 3 cans of throttle body cleaner and clean the plenum and tubes/passage ways attached to it underneath of gunk.

The blowby hose from the back of the passanger side rock cover to the intake sometimes is so old and hard it doesnt want to come off, or go back on. If it feels like very hard/stiff rubber I would get a new one before taking to the task on so you dont put it all back together and be left with needing just that one part to finish the job..........on a Sunday......at 10pm....when everything is closed...

Just have to ask, have you tried just tightening all the valve cover screws? You can access about 75%, and 1/2 the time that will stop the leaks. I did on our 1999.0 back when it had 150k, 175k now and still good...

I have the upper intake manifold gasket , is there a part number for the blowby hose ?

Better yet , do you have it in stock along with the hoses and vacuum lines that Rebelord mentioned , and the OEM knock sensor ?

if its any help, im fairly certain that delphi is the OEM provider for Nissan when it comes the knock sensor specifically (at least on the 3.3), i somehow scored a $33 dollar one off rockauto and they have since jacked it up to the $170 range, but if you can find it cheaper, that the one to get.

ya i would throw a knock sensor at it, but u will need the lower intake gasket as well if you do that. when i did my valve cover gaskets, i went ahead and cleaned the upper and lower intake, did the spark plugs wires and dist.. cap. Also replaced all the hoses / tubing " a couple are preformed" even replaced the vacuum lines, and the one on the fuel pressure regulator as well. your IAC is under there as well, attached to the underside of the upper plenum. oh ya while i had the thing on my work bench i went ahead and put in a new PCV valve and cleaned the throttle body with Throttle body cleaner and some soft bristly brushes.

just to let u know, i was in the driveway a day and 1/2. HOWEVER. if you cut the coolant hoses running through the upper plenum instead of fight with em u can get that time down to probably 4 or 5 hours no prob. and the 2 thicker hoses coming from under the Plenum to the top of the plenum on the driver side is pre formed and the local parts store had to order them so i just did some minor jerry riggin with some other hoses that were pre formed close enough. but you dont have to take those two off is where i was going with that. if they r not brittle or what ever leave em. but ya the little ones in the back of the plenum that are hard to reach, imo just cut em and replace them. i had to cut mine, then cut the hose off the tubing once the upper plenum was off. Eric the Car guy has a decent video on how to do the job on an R50. But he pulls the driver side hoses. but ya u dont have to. 5 hours or 10 bux worth of various sized hoses....hmmmmm.....

 

have fun with that man.

Rob is a parts manager at nissan of McKinney in Texas. Those are prices he offers at said dealer. when ever I order parts it's through him. He hasn't been active for a while but you can still call the dealer and get these prices.

I just got 1 hose that U cut to fit both ends of the passenger side Valve cover.

Nissan wants $70 for these 2 hoses.

The one at the rear is 6" x 1" x 5/8" I.D.

The front is a 90 degree elbow and is 4" x 1" x 5/8" I.D.

 

Get AC DELCO part #16198M - or GM# 88907438 - same part ..2 numbers.

It's whopping $10.10 which will do both.

You are welcome.
