Have you retightened the intake bolts? It often takes three or four times retightening before they take a set and hold torque.

Not saying to over tighten them, just start from the inside and work towards the ends, swapping sides as you go. If the gaskets haven't degraded totally, they still might seal. Might.

If you end up replacing the intake gaskets, be sure to retighten after a couple heat cycles. Repeat until the bolts are staying tight.
