Default trouble installing intake on 3.0

Have 8 metal spacers about half inch thick and unsure of where they go. They look like stacked washers

Look here at Post 88

The manual has details on how to install these.
My thread Post 88 shows that I had metal gaskets at this location and there are tabs on the gaskets that need to be be oriented properly. I used FelPro Gasket Kit (I think I got it from Rock Auto)

The torque sequencing was odd but I attributed that to the special springs on the nuts. There are actually 5 passes for the bolt torque. I worked outward from the middle alternating as I went on each pass. Hope that makes sense. See attached where I marked it up A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H which gets you thru the end of the 2nd pass. Repeat process for passes 3 thru 5.

My experience is with a 3.5, not a 3.0 that you have, so take my experience with a grain of salt.
