Care to elaborate on what you mean with the intake tubes being ice cold?

As for burning rich, I suggest checking the computer's SES codes. Good place to start before playin replace the suspect part game

Also confirm its gas in the exhaust and not antifreeze

Super rich and blown headgasket both smoke white

That is until the rich mixture blows the exhaust off and other fun fun things inside the engine

yes intake runer tubes are all warm except for the back 2.. meanwhile the other 6 run warm i thought it was odd when i felt the 2 ice cold

305 TPI yes? Its an aluminum intake

Whether its ice cold or your finger thermometer is wierd i dont know. I do know that unless you have something blocking the plentum/tubes there will be no difference in them or their function. Move on to the other problems, more info needed

sounds like your not burning up all your Gas. Check plug Gap, maybe a Weak Coil, or you could be Running under Retard/ too advanced Spark. Its easy to Check, just get a Timing light.
