Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. Something still did not seal between the intake and cylinder head, or a vacuum hose is not secure or loose. Get a length of hose and place one end near your ear, and then use the other end to locate the leak by passing it near suspected areas around the manifold. Also, you do not need to use any sealer on the gaskets. They should seal fine without it.
