that sounds like a intake manifold seal leak.

you can spray carb cleaner on the seals, at the heads, to verify that.

here is a diagram to help you -

seal #3 is the seal in question. if your engine is fuel injected, it has the same seal where the throttle body connects to the heads.

let me know if yu need more help.
