I’ve heard of the intake manifold coming apart. After selling close to a dozen on eBay I asked a buyer what happened and his separated on the bottom
Of the plenum but not like yours. His came apart at the seam. I even came across a manifold that came apart at the seam in the junkyard. I didn’t notice until I lifted it out.
Hopefully this brand new one from Germany lasts for a while.😋
