p2006 Intake Manifold saga

Greetings all. New to this forum, but a veteran of Jaguar Forums. Yes, I visit those forums more often, as you might imagine.

Ok, here’s the story...’08 E350
Common issue with V6 intake manifold, code p2006. Determined cause as broken pivot lever.
Removed manifold, installed replacement pivot lever and related flap attachments. Reinstalled manifold. So far so good.
Start the car, still idling roughly. Take it for a short spin around the neighborhood. Running like crap, worse than before.
Read codes, and am now getting entire left bank cylinder misfire codes (0304, 0305, 0306). But, the p2006 is gone.
By the way, I did NOT remove the fuel rail when I took out the intake manifold
Go back and check that all fuel injector connectors and coil packs are connected on that bank...they are.
Cleared the misfire codes. Try to start car and I get crank but no start. Read codes and I get “0 dtc”. ?

Any helpful suggestions from those that have encountered this or similar?

Many thanks,

Replace the intake manifold. There's a reason why the rods in front are made of plastic, they act as mechanical fuse.

Means your intake runners are jammed. From there you have very real possibility of the runners breaking and entering the engine, destroying it.

Seen it a few time.... Just get a new manifold and install.

Because the intake runners control the amount of air getting into each bank. When one is jammed, there's less air getting into one side than other, hence the misfire.
