Inspect and if no apparent damage, reusable.

That's weird how some have the insulation , and some don't ( I cant imagine why it's needed ) I last had my intake off at 135,000 the flaps were clean , I don't know why they would get gunked up , since all that ever touches them is air that has gone through the air cleaner ,...just like the throttle body . ( but we know the butterfly gets gunked up ,...)

It's the PCV system. A small amount of oil gets sucked through it and bakes onto the flaps. An oil separator will eliminate this. I'm considering buying one.

Well about the cam phaser noise. How long is too long to run the engine with bad phasers? I apologize for the hijack. Just trying to learn as much as I can before hand.

Some people run a hundred thousand with it. Some have major damage soon after it starts. No way to tell.
