Intake help

What's up guys. I just replaced my intake with a GT-40. Now I got antifreeze coming out of the exhaust. Everything was fine before I change it. My thought is the gasket moved but just want to make sure. Any thoughts and help is appreciated

You may have put the head gasket on backwards... only one way to find out. Do not drive the car don't start it, etc. Time to get down to the block...

How much coolant are we talking here? As in it was billowing out the back? You could see it being chugged down? Or like you could smell it and there was more vapor than normal out your exhaust?

At Least you you didnt have to take your intake off! The guy I bought my car from drove it around with blown headgaskets and both myself and my mechanic missed it... everything was messed up
