This is the throttle body valve and it's located on the right side of the plenum. It's 99% closed during the cranking procedure. I don't see any issues here.
I removed and cleaned the plenum lid gasket. When I reinstall the gasket it looked like this. The gasket has 4 corners so it wasn't just me stretching it. There's just too much gasket on the far side.
A tube of high temperature Permatex silicone gasket material was applied then smoothed over with a finger.
When the tape was removed it revealed a very nice form fit gasket. Double click on the picture for a closer look. This material takes 24 hours to fully cure so it will sit on the bench until tomorrow.
