    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have 3 extractor ports on each side of my hood with a functional ram air opening in the front of hood. I have the weiand intake. With my application, I think that the heat on my intake would be the same if not less than the LS6 intake installed on a non extracted closed hood. What do you think?

    I don't think so man. Those aluminum intakes tend to get heat soaked. An LS6 intake flows the same but stays much cooler. Even with those vents I doubt it makes a difference.

    I don't know about the whole heat soak debate between the Weiand intake and the LS6 intake, but this is a fact:

    By putting a Weiand intake on versus a composite LS6 intake, you are bolting on about 20 extra pounds to your motor that you could have saved by going with the much lighter LS6 intake.

    Serious heat soak with the Weiand manifold...with the composite manifolds(LS6/LS1) you can hold your hand on them even after hours of driving. Try that with the weiand..

    Aluminum Does absorb a lot a heat and notice it was heavier but is a lot more durable than the LS6. Recently I just bought the LS6 intake manifold with 28lb injectors. The only bad news was that the back of my intake manifold was damaged and pushed in right near the MAP sensor. I did end up repairing it with some fiber glass resin but what are the chances of the resin holding up on the composite?

    True...the weiand would be good for FI for that reason
