Went over to PTCrew & found out there isn't one on the 03. I had checked in my 2003 Daimler Chrysler Corporation Service Manual & couldn't find one. So being the genius i am i looked in the Hanes manual & there it is. Went to Advanced auto & they sold me a gasket for it. I am chasing a vacuum leak. Believe i found it. The upper intake to lower intake manifold gasket has a track from the outside to the inside around #4. Chasing Misfire #4 cylinder. Does anyone think i should go deeper?

The 03 GT doesn't have an EGR valve. If you are still using stock plug wires get rid of them. I'm using Bosch Premium plug wires with a life time warranty. I don't like champion plugs as they leak, and went to NGK 2315.Tie wrap all vacuum lines, especially down by the turbo and brake boost. One reason I went with the plastic intake manifold is the o-rings instead of the gaskets used on the aluminum manifold, and less heat sink.

Yup only up to '02 had EGR.
Spray starter fluid along seam of intake manifold - if idle smooths out, intake gasket is bad.
