6. I cleaned up the top with my die grinder and Buffing pad , along with intake cleaner , and blowing it dry with my blow gun. Making sure to NOT get any sensors wet ( TPMS, IAC ) and NOT go damage EGR gasket.

7. Install the spacer REUSING your old gasket as well as the new one. Gasket - spacer - Gasket
USE the new bolts .. They are longer , only reuse the longest bolts. Which is the middle bolt, and bolt to the front right, and torque them down to 90-100 Inch LBs , I didn't use a torque wench I just tightened them by hand.
