    Also, my LS6 intake came with no gaskets. Its got the orange thing around the TB diameter and blue things around each intake port...are THESE the gaskets?

    That kit includes two AIR plates & one EGR plate.
    If you car is a 1998-2000, you need them all I believe.
    If you have a 2001-2002, you'll only use the AIR plates, as the newer models don't have the EGR sysem like the older ones.

    Is that info, or do we need more info to figure this out?

    If yer gonna remove the EGR system, ya might as well remove the AIR system also. There's a recent thread on LS1Tech that shows 'how-to'.

    who did you buy it new from???
    each intake port should have its own gasket (light grey in color)

    if you dont have them i actualy have a set laying around (new in packaging)

    If you're careful with them when removing everything you can most likely just reuse your old gaskets. It really depends on what kinda shape they're in. I bought new gaskets but when I took my old ones off I could've very easily reused those.

    Hmm, well the LS6 intake that I got direct from SLP DOES have these rubber things that look like gaskets...but I dont know, that just seems..cheap. Shouldnt I put some gaskets in between them too?

    I was talking about the egr and air gaskets. Your intake will already have rubber 0-ring gaskets around the ports and the throttle body. No need for any other gaskets. Torque accordingly. When you're reading the torque for the intake remember it's in-lb's and not ft-lbs. 44 in-lb's the first pass and 89 in-lbs the second pass.

    Don't break your oil sending unit on the back of the block drivers side. The booster hose is what will get it so be careful dragging that out.

    Thanks. I didnt know these were sufficient enough.

    Ive done this install before 3 times with a Weiand. First time I did it, I did break off the cheap fucking oil sending unit. I couldnt believe how easy it is to break. THen we had to uninstall, reinstall cuz the 'modified' coolant lines didnt work, so I had to order the new ones. Then an uninstall and reinstall occurred again.

    Ok, now I am waiting for the block off plates. Thanks!

    Ok I am about to install the LS6 (this time) and I am wondering if I need some sort of gaskets for the center front and the center rear of the manifold.

    I cant remember... I sure didnt get any with my LS6 setup SLP sent me.

    No, it seals around the ports.

    DONE!

    I did it yesterday and the only performance indicator was the SOTP. I DID notice a difference. I remember I did NOT with the Weiand, but who knows.

    Now if I can just get rid of this pinging...
