There are supposed to be fiber/plastic gaskets between the intake runners,
and the head on a T-3. The last gasket set I bought, these did not come with
it. I have torn T-3 engines down, that had the T-1 metal duel port gasket in
their place. This does not work very well. It is possible that you have a
vacuum leak between the intake runners and the head. While the engine is
running at idle, spray something like WD-40 around the intake. (do not use
anything that is too flammable). If the engine smooths out momentarily, you
have this problem.
