You didn't say if there were any problems prompting this recommendation. If you are having idle problems like surging or stumbling, or a failed emissions test, then looking for vacuum leaks and replacing the injector seals and air hoses makes sense. Otherwise, count your blessings and save your money.

I say this from personal experience. I just finished re-sealing the intake manifold on my 380 on an indie's advice and about all I can say is that it was a lot of work for no benefit.
