Is the cooling system full? You don't have to bleed the cooling system of these cars. I bought a '93 model (same car) brand new and had it for 19 years. I too had the intake gaskets replaced on mine. Sounds like the crossover passage is blocked due to the gaskets being installed wrong. There's a cooling system passage that runs through the intake manifold. If it's blocked it will overheat.
