Question Intake Manifold Gasket

Guys,
i am going to repaint intake covers of my Gallardo in a yellow color and would like to ask you a following question: Do i have to buy new gaskets №7 and №8 by the disassembling/assembling?



Your any opinions are appreciated.
Thanks.

Do you HAVE to?

Well, you don't have to, but if you really want to minimize the chance of sucking in dirt, then, you probably should.

Are they outrageously expensive?

And really, I think the black with polished "Lamborghini" looks classy, but the yellow? It's a bit....




I know, you didn't ask for my opinion.

I haven't seen a repainted manifold that I like. Most of the jobs are color matching to the exterior. After seening VI, White, Yellow and Orange, I think the classic black is just fine. If I were to do it, I would leave the crackled texture instead of sanding it smooth. A matte color also blends in better with the rest of the engine bay.

I think Ferrari does a great job at styling. Their manifolds are red by default. Ferrari interior badges and shields are all done very tastefully without going over the top. When modding an exotic, I tend to stick with similar themes.

I think that a combination yellow and black colors would be good.

Regarding the cost they are almost $300 worth.

The crackled black texture looks cheap and in my opinion Ferrari makes an outstanding paint design of the engines. Much better than Lambo, especially Gallardo model.

I think it would be worth getting new gaskets if you are pulling them off.
