    Leaky intake

    So yesterday i found out that i have a leaky intake from the backend of the engine. i am going to pull the intake and reseal it. My question is i want to go with an intake that is the best bang for my buck. I hear alot about the LS6 upgrade. Is this the best intake to go with? Also i want to know if there is a throttle body upgrade that will compliment the intake upgrade as well as maybe an air intake system that will have everything flow alot nicer. I hear that a Volant CAI in a good one. Also any upgrades that i should do right aways that im under the hood, maybe bigger injectors or anything of that sort? Any info will help, Thx.

    Nice, so if that's the case what would be a notable upgrade from stock?

    what are your mods ...if stock...nothing really to warrant the price..get a lid or a cai, then do exhaust and some suspension

    Cool thx, I don't have extreme mods. I done a K&N and I should've waited since I wanna do a CAI. Also I done a 1.5in lowering kit with new shocks. What else would u recommend suspension wise?

    Subframe connectors, Tq arm, lower control arms. Do you have a lid? In my opinion a good lid is just as good as a CAI. Long tube headers are a great mod.
