    its the casting your talking about with the heads, the triangle shape depicts it.
    But it doesnt flow any better.

    Also some ls1 did come with the ls6 block! that was for oil ventalition! they eat less oil!

    I just wanted to see a picture of the so-called 02 with an LS1 intake and EGR...I'd also like to see a picture of the sticker on the '02 car that lists the emissions components.

    Ok, I found this shot under the hood of my SS. You can clearly see the cast iron exhaust manifolds, the AIR injection in the top of the manifold, and the coolant hose (I believe) feeding into the Throttle Body. Would also like to see pics under your hood to compare...

    I'm still waiting for proof that 01-02 f-bodies came with an ls1 manifold.

    Pitty you wont find any since they all came with an ls6 manifold.

    I have a LS6 Intake manifold on my 02 WS6... I found out form the great folks on this site that all 01/02's have the LS6 intake. I also checked with My uncle who has been one of the mechanics at City Chevrolet for about 15 years.. He confirms it as well...

    Im also one of the lucky ones to have the LS6 block.. But I dont think its any faster that a LS1 block..
    Im told that the only difference is the material in the block etc.. would be good for adding NOS or Blower/Turbo etc..

    Besides.. Cubes are important, but The intake head and cam package is what makes these cars what they are...

    Just my .02

    This is another fine peeing contest we have here-- if there werent girls involved here I'd say it was a macho thing but-looks like some people are confused about the z-06 stuff and the LS-6 stuff.Haven't seen the stainless exhaust manifolds on any f-body-anybody else?My 02 Z-28 doesn't have an egr valve-I think they all came that way.I know on my car it's impossible to put a mirror behind the block an see anything,an relying on the shiny or dullness of the block is kinda dicey at best,as they get older aluminum tends to oxidize an dull out.That website reference is just somebody elses opinion -there are no references to the source of their info so take the "facts" as presented with a grain of salt.I have read in a couple different magazine sources that all 2001 and 2002 LS-1 have the LS-6 intakes and it stands to reason that since the factory raised the H.P. rating in 2001 they would all have this.Don't have the latest issue of Hotrod cause I left it at work in the toolbox-yeah I'm a pro wrench an that's my .02 worth.

    98 yes ... your 02 either ain't an 02 or someone sold you a salvage with a 98-99 parts/engine.

    Look at the mainfold AIR tube flanges on both your cars are they parallel or perpendicular to the engine?

    boy, it is absolutely amazing that since this board was re-opened, there has been so much bad information discussed on here. Everyone is an expert because they read something somewhere, just amazing.

    Hold on.......SLP modifies the vehicles Chevrolet built,just wanted to clarify that.Then call them and ask the questions and post the answers,don't just tell people to do it .I'm a little confused by the reference to stamped steel exhaust manifolds,I've never seen that-and I'm a veteran auto mechanic who just spent 3 years in an exhaust shop.I don't have a SS so maybe SLP put on headers and took off the cast iron stock manifolds,some body else can clarify that point.Headers are made up from steel tubes -it would be incorrect to call that stamped and maybe causing the confusion,IDK.And to the people commenting that there is all this bad info-add some facts to the discussion and clarify who you think is putting in bad info-that would be constructive critism.I looked in the latest issue of Hotrod magazine (and aside from the cool article on the LS-7 427 z-06 engine)and didn't see ant reference to LS-6 manifolds. Looking at the SLP catalog they sell a LS-6 intake manifold for 1998-2000 Camaro-Firebirds (part number 30041) which features SLP's "exclusive EGR modification" which enables the use of the stock EGR system.What I believe we are reading here is that the 2001 on up cars already have a LS-6 manifold and no EGR was on the LS-6 manifold from the factory.SLP is claiming a possible 15 h.p. increase at the rear wheels from the LS-6 manifold -that's hefty and worth the effort if anyone was interested.All right-my fingers are getting sore from all this typing-just wanted to say in closing-there is nothing wrong with debating these things,keep a clear head and discuss,don't insult. Update-I found the HotRod magazine article in the Jan 06 issue-and it's very informative about a number of things-but they state (like the guy says)that LS6 manifolds come on 02 and up-I think they are wrong on that.Good article though-sorry about the confusion.

    Correct - and they do not do anything outside of a lid, or a cat back exhaust. Other wise, they offered suspension upgrades, wheels, car covers and key fobs.

    SLP did not install intake or exhaust manifolds (or headers). And GM would not phase out LS1 intakes in 2000, recertify the emissions to no longer require EGR, and then continue to let LS1 manifolds go onto cars in '01 & '02.

    As you also point out, the aftermarket has embraced the fact that 97-00 LS1's benefit from the LS6 intake, which is why several manufacturers carry different part numbers for head and intake kits, as well as headers that do/don't hook up to EGR.
