Drain the cooling system and disconnect the negative battery cable.
CAUTIONWhen draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container.

With the locator dowels in place on the head, install the intake manifold side gaskets.
When sure that the block is oil-FREE, peel off the paper (blue-rear, brown-front) and press firmly onto the block. Align the slots in the end seals with the notches in the intake manifold gaskets.
Into each of the four corner pockets, insert Mopar® Silicon Rubber Adhesive Sealant, or equivalent. Do NOT overfill.
The lower intake manifold must be installed within three minutes of the sealant's having been applied. After in place, inspect to be sure all the gaskets and the seals are in their proper places. Finger-start all lower intake bolts.
Tighten in sequence to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
Install a new gasket and the upper intake manifold and finger-tighten all bolts. Alternate from one side to the other.
Tighten the bolts to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
Install a new gasket and the throttle body onto the upper intake manifold. Tighten the bolts to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm).
