    I'm pretty sure there is a ls6 on ebay now with a BIN of $225.

    How can you say I overpaid?
    Where could I find a NEW manifold WITH hardware(coolant crossover pipe, and block-off plugs, gaskets, and EGR compatable)?
    I might have been able to buy a used one, but I needed one that was EGR compatable.

    i stand corrected. i misread. i thought it was intake only and not EGR friendly...

    when i picked up my Ls6 (non EGR) it was for $300 new (came with gaskets but not the coolant lines)...

    good buy...

    What type of work needs to be done to swap intakes from an LS1 to an LS6?
    I've read about grinding this and that, is this neceassry?
    Shouldn't it just bolt up, just curious what else is involved ?

    This is my question too. Is a FAST necessary with a cammed car on stock heads.

    This might help give you an idea of what is involved. http://ls1howto.com/index.php?article=5
    That is a good site that someone here turned me onto. As far as the cooling lines go, I guess it is just a difference in design between the ls1 and ls6 intakes.

    Nope. Still good for a head/cam car.

    Refering to grinding, there talking about the ribs on the bottom of the intake manifold. You can either grind the ribs down to clear the coolant lines or you can buy a coolant crossover pipe kit. Either method will work. Here is a pic of the ribs ground down on the bottom of the intake.

    400 ain't hard to get with a LS6 intake. I made 380 with a LS1 intake, 3.73s and a stall. That probably translates into about 390-395rwhp.

    Try a torquer v2 or v3 cam.
