I bought an intake manifold off a late 90s crown vic from a local junkyard and it looks like it has built in gaskets. Is this possible?

Not really leaks, at least in the ones i've pulled. The inner plastic in the coolant ports seem to crack from the integrated gasket design, if it went unchecked they might crack completely off and end up floating around the cooling system. the build quality sucks as well, they are glued together using 3 moulded pieces and the top and bottom half partially meet in the runners possibly disturbing flow.

Yea I searched it and the topic tends to start flame wars haha. I think I'm going to stick with it since I already have it and I only paid $20 for it.

i've seen many intakes cracked at the drivers side rear inside the coolant passage lately, might want to look there for a crack
