    Not unless your running boost or big cubes, stick with the ls6 and stock TB, They will carry you up to around 500 hp at the wheels.

    Blue28 has a bbk. If I recall he said it doesn't get as hot as people say unless you turn the car off and let it sit. You could ask him if you are really interested. If you go bbk go with the 85mm

    Never seen that with a ls-6 n/a do you possibly have any links?

    Really I always thought the ls6 and stock tb would be enough for 500 at the crank.

    screw 'em both, get a FAST combo, and be done with it. imo, the ls6 intake is a joke and i would never put a heavier intake that possibly gets heat-soaked back in its place...

    Not really...

    We all know how famous the BBK and Weilden intakes are for heat sink. The LS6 is the least in the group (not counting the fast). Also should he decide to spray, I doubt the FAST would hold up and he will be down $1200.
