Hi everyone!

New Mazda 3 owner here and loving it so far! Well, new to me anyways. I recently bought a 2014 i Touring 2.0 with a 6 speed and have done some preventative maintenance to know that everything is in working order. One of the things I found out is that this has a PCV valve that is located under the intake manifold.... YAY! I have ordered a new one but was wondering if the intake manifold gaskets are rubber and reusable or if they are paper gaskets? And roughly, how long does this take to do? I'm just wondering if this is a simple project or something that should wait for the weekend? Thanks for any help!

Replace with new Mazda OEM gaskets (perfect fitting- synthetic like silicone), pcv plastic ring retainer (optional- if you don't break the old one) you'll need a good seal. For first time - rsvp for the weekend.
